After almost 2.5 months in a second CoViD lockdown, we started up again. In proper INCH tradition, we had someone get lost despite sticking together. 3.8kft of elevation gain kept the heart pumping for a relatively short hike. Recent fires removed some obstacles, but the summit area was still overgrown in spots.
It was supposed to be raining throughout the hike, but the day before, the weather changed to only raining near the beginning. Indeed, we got a little drizzle at the beginning, but after that, it was fine. Trails were not the least bit muddy.
