Left CB at 7:30AM,summitted at 11:30. Great climb, lots of up rocks and loose gravel. Fantastic views of the arc of the volcanoe rim on which you stand. Ranier, Adams and Hood were beautiful standing above the blanket of cloud stretching as far as the eye could see. Also awesome to watch the clouds wisping, forming and chasing us up the mountain after we popped up above them. Blew out my knees and had to go all the way down the mountain backwards! Fine now, but wonder what happenned. I guess more prep next time. GOOD CLIMB!!! Went with my buddy Todd.
