|Others in Party:||Mary Urban|
|Date:||Saturday, December 31, 2005|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||1978 ft / 602 m|
Ascent Trip ReportWe parked our vehicle near the gravel pit just beyond Roland lake. The L' Anse area received 6 inches of snow the night before. The tree branches were covered with snow and it made the route a winter wonderland. We cross country skiied about 5.6 miles down Ravine River Road till it got steep and then hiked the last half mile and carried our skis. We only met 4 other people who were on snowmobiles. The summit is only 1979 feet, but it was a tough 12.2 mile roundtrip climb in the snow. The benches and picnic table at the summit were covered with snow. We had lunch, signed the register in the yellow mailbox, and then had a blast skiing back. Downhill was much easier. A great day with my wife Mary and son Ryan. HP #6.
