Incredible day on St. Helens! VERY crowded, due to phenomenal weather on the first day after the permit season. Made it from the TH to the crater ridge in 1:54:13 (previous PR was 1:55:33 in July!) and then had a slowww trek over to the true summit due to a crowded conga line of hikers, with 2:11:11 as my time to the true summit. Had extra fun on the way down for a total time of 3:52:24. Everyone out there was having a great day! It's definitely possible to shave off time on this ascent, especially from the crater ridge to the true summit on a less busy day. Overall, it was a (volcanic) BLAST.
