Ascent Trip Report

Second of 3 short ascents on the last day of 2010. The tiny ski centre car park sits in a steep sided bowl. There was a lot of snow and after strapping on my snowshoes I climbed up through the forest onto the right hand (western) rim of the bowl and basically followed that to the top being careful not to get run down when crossing the piste!
