Brutal. The wind was strong from the beginning at 7am...and all the way up. At summit, tons of clouds and wind so strong that for the two seconds I took off my glove for a pic, my hand became painful very quick. The temp was around 20, but with the 60+ mph gusts, it was WELL BELOW ZERO. Drifts were at 2ft+ in many places and trail was covered with snow the entire route.
