Ascent Trip ReportFirst trip w/ Stabilicers; went well. carried the snowshoes but snow was never deep enough to use them. One gray jay found me; fed him part of my english muffin.
climbed the tower & stayed for only a few moments; clear view, but very windy and cold. Hands froze on the ladder rungs.
Only saw one other set of hikers; they were bare-booted and turned back before reaching the summit.
