Ascent Trip Report

This makes a great spring objective. We were blocked by a down tree 0.6 miles from the TH but other wise this was a nice hike. The tread on the lower approach is generally fine but the brush is encroaching in places. The blow-downs and dead-fall from the 2006 Tripod fire are somewhat annoying but many now have bypasses scratched in around them. Some benefits of an early ascent of North Twentymile are plenty of water and cool temps. We hit snow at 5100 ft and switched to snowshoes at point 6813 ft. It sure felt like winter still on top with the breezy weather and impending storm clouds heading our way. The forecast precipitation held off until our drive back.
