Ascent Trip Report

This was a last minute hike, and got to the trailhead a little after 12. Short but blood-pumping. About 3" of fresh powder ontop of existing snowshoe path. Snowshoe path was well defined, a few snow drifts near the ledges toward the summit. Signed in canister. Gorgeous sunny day.
