I went with the Mazamas on this trip. There have been some thunderstorms in the area lately, so we watched the clouds carefully. Gorgeous morning, plenty of folks out on the trail. The scramble route up the scree to the summit block was fun, but very dusty on the way down. I reccommend wearing pants or gaiters, and bringing gloves. We used protection on the climb up to the summit block, although many others didn't.
