Ascent Trip Report

Winter/snow ascent of Mummy Mountain via Mummy Springs route. Encountered deep powder with a hard crust, and spent much of the day postholing up to my groin toward the summit. Turned back when Rich lost a crampon. Lengthy search failed to locate his right crampon. Great workout. I didn't really need this summit anyway and was in it for the snow experience. Did some mixed rock/snow/ice climbing in crampons during the route - a first for me. I finally got my GPS back in action for this outing after waiting for weeks for a part from China.
