Ascent Trip Report

I had done Tecumseh last year but did it with Brian to get him another peak & keeping me in hiking shape....Got to TH around 8am & took a look at the trail & determined we didn't need snowshoes.....Snow was slushy & hard to walk on as we kept slipping ....About 3/4 of the way up & we put on our crampons & I believe this was the right decision....After the junction of the soosman tr was probably the only spot on the trail where snowshoes could have been use...On way down we saw a few people heading up to get in a winter hike We were supposed to do Monroe but seeing the weather we decided on an easier hike
