Ascent Trip Report

Windy and cold water tube keep freezing on hydration pack. Snow was deep kept going through. Had to put snowshoes on to walk. Took alot of time to find a place to cross Biscuit Brook, water was high. Had to go looking for summit with gps unit to find canister. This was all of ours first canister. We passed a pile of rocks on the trail just below the summit and I should have went looking for the summit from there. I learned a lesson from that. It took from 8:30am to 7pm to do the whole trip.
