We met at the Richmond park and ride at 8:30 and took one car to the trailhead. It was overcast but not raining or snowing as we started out around 9:10.

After passing the brook crossing around 9:50, we started to see some snow and ice on the ground, but even on the rocks it was thin and soft enough that microspikes wouldn’t have been useful. We reached the summit around 10:45, but it was pretty windy and there were no views, so we headed right back down.

We saw only two people on the way up, but saw several groups headed up while we were on our way down. We reached the car around 12:15.

Participants: Seth Bortz, David Hathaway (substitute leader).
