Ascent Trip Report

Since there was so little snow this year, we got to drive all the way up to the Onion Valley trailhead at 9kft. On summit day though, we turned around at ~1PM when it was clear we still had a few hours to the summit. We had to pack up our gear, get off the mountain, and drive home that day and didn't want to get back too late.
