Ascent Trip Report

Returned to Crawfords after hiking up Mount Willard. Met up with the group there. Several stream crossings along route. Snow was first seen around 3000 feet and covered the trail by 3500 feet. Microspikes were a huge plus, made moving on the trail much easier. Views from the summit are fairly limited, but skies were completely clear and what angles available were impressive.
