Trail was wet with running water on the slabs. There was standing water in a few places. Raingear and gloves were needed today.

A very wet day, with bands of rain throughout the morning. We enjoyed a howling wind and sleet at the summit. No view, the mist was thick and we barely saw the breadth of the summit outcropping. Fortunately most of the hike is in the trees, out of the wind.
