It rained all day, which was kind of unpleasant, though needed. We also climbed "The Priest," a largish mountain that was much-dreaded in the logbooks but not really that hard (again, the switchbacks really helped). The Priest Shelter logbook at lunch was really fun, though -- called people titled it "The Confessional" and hikers "confess their sins" in it, in lieu of more traditional logbook entries... it was a fun read.
It was cold and rainy, so we took a long lunch break and waited until it cleared up a bit before hiking out. We met Curse and Little Dipper coming in just as we were leaving, and made it to our shelter around 7. We met up with Cricket and an older couple out for a week. It was nice getting into our sleeping bags and out of the cold!
