The hike was great. The summit was covered in clouds, which we climbed right into.

The upper section of the mountain involves some bouldering; it's a lot of fun, and you can do it with no climbing experience or special equipment.
Be sure to wear good hiking shoes or boots, something with a good tread and traction.
Bring a small backpack to carry your water, extra clothes, and snacks.
Bring at least a liter of water (reusable bottle recommended).
Wear layers, and have space enough in your backpack to carry items you shed. Even though it might be nice weather at the base of the mountain, it will get colder and windier as you approach the summit. Lightweight athletic wear and a light coat on top are best.
If you have an allergy that requires an epipen, notify staff in advance and bring a non-expired pen with you.
We will have basic first aid materials with us.
Phones will not have a signal on the hike, so leave them in airplane mode. (You will probably want them to take photos, thought). :)
