It was amazing the number of unprepared hikers that day, attempting the summit in just shorts! On the way down, I actually shared my weather gear to folks stuck in the halfway cabin so that they can get back to the trailhead.
Just to clarify, this wasn't an unprepared hiker, it was someone attempting suicide.

And, though I'm usually dismissive of FLL's flippant posts, the above are disrespectful. Comments like that about mental health issues and/or suicide are never ok.
