Ascent Trip Report

Went in with Zach, got to the lot around 9:30. Started at the lot at the end of FR92. Walked in on snowshoes until the trailhead of Garfield Trail. Swapped to crampons soon after, kept them on until the summit. Weather was overcast but the temp was fine until the exposed summit, only stayed for a few minutes. On the way down Zach was able to glissade on most of the steep sections.
