Ascent Trip Report

What a difficult hike. 18 to 24 inches of snow on the ground. Only 3 cross country skiers broke the trail before us till the handicap incline to Ravine lodge which we broke for 1/2 a mile. The rest of the hike was only broken by one skier. After summiting we took a trail to South Peak .2 miles in and out 279' elevation. The decent was pretty much pretty easy. Thank God!
