Ascent Trip ReportVery cold today. Nice walk in about 1.5 miles then hard climb to summit. Lots of slippery spots and ice slides near top. Clear view at the summit. Nice in all directions. Micro spikes through out, though snow got a bit deeper near summit. About -19 at the top so didn't spend a lot of time up there. Takes a lot of care coming down on the ice. After that, easy trip back to trailhead.
