I made the summit today, about 3.5 hours up (quite the cardio workout).  Great views and the rain stayed away until I was 5 minutes from the car.  Much tougher than I would have expected for a class 1 climb.

This was such an amazing climb!  It was rainy and cloudy all day, but when I got to the top, the rain stopped and the clouds parted.  Great day!
