Ascent Trip Report

Paul graduated, but couldn't resist the temptation to go back to the High Peaks...So when I called him, of course he was down for one more trip. Started from AMR, and eventually turned off the road. Elk Pass was a sheet of ice. Wintery conditions all over in points above the road. Elk Pass was really icy, and crampons probably would have helped. Got to the top after a while. Had great views of the Great Range.
