So windy it was raining up Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2011
This hike goes by VERY quickly. It's easy to miss the turnoff to Benchmark from the WCR trail. The turnoff is in a meadow with rocks that really have no business being there. Looks to me like there may have been two different lookout locations at the top. It was so windy it was raining up.
