Ascent Trip Report

Gorgeous day on trail.
Cold, but after warming up only needed a half-zip to be comfortable.
Snowshoes all the way up, and changed to crampons (microspikes) for the trip down. Once I got to the spot where the trail split off however, needed to go back to snowshoes as the trail was less downtrodden.
