Ascent Trip Report

Nice brisk morning. The Greatexplorer had a bad back, so she bailed out after 1/2 mile. The path was mostly plowed all the way to the ruins. The hike up to the fire tower was on mostly packed snow with a little postholing. Lots of people on the mountain this day. Took advantage of the good conditions to trail run back to the car.
