Ascent Trip Report

Trail to Kearsarge Pass is in good shape. Some snow on ground but nothing that required snowshoes at this point.

Super windy past the pass. We tried to stay on the east side of the South Ridge to stay out of the wind as much as possible. Snow pack was 1-4ft with a good base layer. Two in our group used an axe and microspikes; the other two of us just kicked steps with an axe most of the way (putting on crampons for a couple of the steeper sections).

Great snow climb with a fun granite climb to finish.
