Hannegan Peak

A very good trip with big views. Would suggest going on a weekday, although Sunday's seem to not be too crowded. Hikers should be fit as last 1,200' is steep.

We were a party of 3.  Sunny at start and then marine layer came in with cool winds.  Great views.  A number of tents high up on the mountain, even on the summit.  Sunday seems to be a good day for smaller crowds.  Lots of backpackers leaving and only a few groups coming in plus a moderate amount of hikers and trail runners.  Interestingly we passed a couple who climbed Ruth Mountain, apparently without ropes or crampons.  The woaman had a pack a little bigger than my lunch.
