Climbed Mount Si again today, leaving the parking lot at 2:45. Took William with me, and hit about 30 people on the way off the mountain. By the time we hit mile marker 3, no one else was above us. We topped out at 1 hour and 43 minutes, and stayed for about 10 minutes. East wind made it very cold, I would guess around 35 degrees. After dumping 4 quarts of water, we headed back down. Made the bottom at 3 hours 2 minutes, so round trip of 2 hours 52 minutes. Not bad, legs feel good seeing this is the fourth time up in 8 days. I incresed the pack weight to 38 pounds, and it felt good. I will stay at this weight for a while. William did great, and we were out of the parking lot by 5:45pm.
