Ascent Trip Report

First ascent in winter. Jonathan insisted we climb and I was thinking "not", but gave in and what a wonderful day. Don't remember all the details, but we left early and found the trail head easily. Very cold, but naturally warms as we moved up. Both wore snowshoes the whole way I think. Top was wonderful, no wind and clear as I have ever seen. Peaks all over and J knowns them all. We took many pictures and stayed a long time for a winter peak. Was very glad I was convinced to come. Down was easy, met several parties on the way up, all with microspikes. Home in time for the Packer game after a quick bier and burger stop at the near by pub.
