Ascent Trip Report

Came in from Conrad Meadows. Camped in the basin below Warm Lake. Mostly snow with islands of bare ground. All snow to the ridge top then off and on snow to the summit. Some steep snow just before the summit scramble. Met up with Craig W. and Mr. Peakbagger on the summit ridge. Took the north Surprise Lake loop on the way in and the south loop on the way out. Seems like kind of a toss up for which is best but far less horse traffic on the north loop.
