Ascent Trip Report

Attempted Mt. Willey, but turned back due to poor trail conditions and a not-so-good feel about the rest of the trail. Used rope on the way down, and it was so much of a lifesaver that had I known about its usefulness before we turned back, I would have been fine with going for the summit. Oh well, I think I'll stay below 4,000 feet this winter!
