Ascent Trip ReportReally. Someone couldn't go kick a few rocks off the top so this one wouldn't be included in the 4K list???? What a death march with very little views. Ok, the Owl's Head path ascent and descent were kind of exciting in a death like way. But really...
Solo trek with ~4 inches of new snow. The river crossings were crazy (snow bridges over some pretty fast moving water...).
