Ascent Trip Report

Summit road still closed due to snow (though it turned out to be nothing the average truck with a plow mounted couldn't dispatch in an hour). Parked across from locked gate and headed up trail 130. Moderate amount of snow on trail. Reached campground and decided to take road which was clearer than trail. Decided road had too many long switchbacks so turned uphill. Except for short stretch of slide alder near bottom it went easily. Reached S high point then traversed to Vista House on snow. Back down same way, taking Tea Kettle run down to road which then followed all the way down to car.
