Ascent Trip Report

Drove up friday night in a snowstorm and slept in the Element on the South side of the mountain. Woke up and made exec decision to drive to other side to hike up. Snowy but uneventful until above treeline. Lost trail, went up steep incline toe kicking. Little sketchy; passed over summit unaware until running into snowshoer who helped us find a trail down, which we had to abandon lacking good traction gear. Followed another trail to ski area and bushwhacked a mile to get back to trail.
