After the monsoon weekend went back to Capitol with unexpected day off. Had other weekend plans, but they changed when people bailed at last minute. Left th at 245, summit at 1130. 2 groups of 2 people went up the north face, I saw 2 summit and talked to other 2 at saddle going down. Some dark clouds here and there but nothing threatening. Back at car at 645PM.

Did you use any traction for snowfields people have been reporting? They don't look that bad... tempted to save the weight.
