Ascent Trip Report

Pete, PeterG, Milton, LarryP and myself climbed the Ammo to the Dungeon in Lake of the Clouds Hut; Pete stayed behind as the weather socked in, while PeterG, Milton, Larry and myself went on to summit Monroe in near whiteout conditions. We couldn't follow the trail nor find most of our tracks on the way back down since they were quickly covered with snow and visibility was very low, but we managed to make it back to the hut using compass bearings.
