Comments
Comments: A wonderful hike. Much warmer the first time which was summer time ;) Trail is hard packed until the Mizpah cutoff, there are then a few additional post holes besides monorail and some drifting but nothing major by any means... still well packed and frozen solid especially with the temps this weekend. Summit past alpine zone sign is rather drifted but there is not a ton of exposure on this hike so rather easy to navigate to summit. Entire hike up was chilly but comfortable with the right gear/layers but the summit was very cold and windy. Outstanding views and mostly clear skies for the entire 5 minutes we were on the summit before going back below tree line. Hike itself isn't super taxing, gradual incline and nothing technical. Very quick hike (just over three hours), great views, not a ton of exposure, and a (currently) hard packed microspike friendly trail made for a good Sunday. Saw 8-10 other hikers today, all seemed happy with the general consensus that this was not tropical weather but still a fun time.
