Ascent Trip Report

Nice day on trail. Only thing I would have changed would be to have either snow/ice all the way up, or none at all. The snow and ice were substantial in some areas, but the ground was completely bare in others, so it was a bit of a quandary as to whether or not to wear spikes (unless you wanted to keep taking them on and off).
