Ascent Trip Report

An unbelievably beautiful day for a winter hike. Clear and 15ish in the morning, and 25ish in the afternoon. I used the Ridge Trail from 73, and also bagged Rocky, which was brutal due to the unbroken trail, and unconsolidated snow.

I highly recommend crampons, as the trail up Giant was very well packed, and there were large patches of ice.
