Comments: We were debating between Ike and Willey. The forecast called for possible showers and thunderstorms, and we didn't want to be above treeline in those conditions and we didn't want to waste a no-view day on Eisenhower. At the last minute, we figured we'd take a chance on Eisenhower and hope for the best. Weather was fine on the way up, then the winds picked up and it started raining hard about a half mile before reaching the ridge. I was wishing we were on Willey instead. It was windy, rainy, and cold on the way up the summit loop, and we figured we'd just tag the summit cairn and head right back down. But as we approached the summit, we could see clearing to the south and west, and within minutes it cleared over the summit too. The rest of the Presies were in and out of the clouds and sun. Watching the clouds roll up and over the summits and the ridge made for unusual and awesome views.
