Ascent Trip Report

-Did not leave early enough.
-Snow was knee deep at points even with snow shoes.
-Wind was so much that I did not feel safe on the approach to Mt. Hardwood.
-Recommend bringing a battle buddy in the deep snow. I was afraid that I would step on a cornice and fall down the slide face of Mt hardwood so I turned around.
