Ascent Trip Report

Was able to drive within a quarter mile of the end of the road where snow hidden in the shadows of the willows stopped me from driving any further. Ascened from the head of Osgood Canyon directly to 8200 feet on the ridgeline before hitting deep snow up on high ridges. It was cold and windy so the snow was firm enough to keep from postholing too much. The traverse of the last quarter mile required some downclimbing to the west to get around a couple airy snow covered drops off the east side.
