Ascent Trip Report

Weather forecast was supposed to be good - but day started in clouds and fog. Conditions a bit tough at top of Valley Way and across to Adams - crust on top and kept punching through. Still in a fog when we summited Madison, but slowly cleared as made our way to Adams. Clouds stayed around most of the Presis but cleared to the north and gave a few nice views. Great trip down Airline - nice views of ravine and surrounding peaks, ridges. Nice way to finish the single season winter 48.
