Comments: late start this morning but an hour later would have been better as summits had cleared of fog once I was back to the hut. Nice chat with grumpy on ascent..Several thru hikers along the way..some chatty and some not so. This group seemed to be all ahead of meb..
Met a group of around a dozen folks coming down from the hut..sadly, they were not having a good day and appeared headed to a long silent drive home...
Rocks were mostly dry heading up South Twin which made it better
