Ascent Trip ReportGreat hike, pretty sustained steep climb on the Osceola Trail.
There was a couple feet of snow, but the trail was pretty well packed down.
Frozen branch on the ridge
I use crampons the whole way up, switched to snowshoes for the way down. Did alot of sliding on the way down which was a ton of fun. I ended up getting alot of leg cramps towards the top, that's never happened before. Met a guy named Reg from Montreal at the main summit.
That's Reg's finger in the corner
