Ascent Trip ReportGreat day! The wife and I ascended the mt on Sat feb 14 in about 2.5 hrs and stood atop Cascade Mt for the first time. We had snowshoes all the way up the Mt until the summit rocks where we swapped snowshoes for spikes. It was sunny low 20's and very windy on the summit. It was certainly an unforgettable day! 1.5 hr descent.
