Ascent Trip Report

The snow was about 6-18 inches most of the way up however about 700ft from the top it started gettin 24-30 inches deep. I didn't have snow shoes with me and so the logical thing to do was turn around since it would have taken me to long to get to the top and would have used up to much of my energy. It was clear and cold about 15 degrees F on the mountain
