Ascent Trip ReportWeather was great... but the slow pace I had to keep while climbing the steep snow with rental snowshoes (blisters on both heels from walking mile + in ski boots a couple days before... yeah... what was I thinking...) made it impossible to continue for summt and get off mountain in time to meet the schedule I was locked into...
Grabbed lunch at the A-Frame and headed back down...
will have to be a return trip...
