Ascent Trip Report

Late start and post-holing every 3rd step was wreaking havoc on my knee... snowshoes were useless after a point due to the pitch of the terrain.

Will return...

>> Postscript <<
Found out after the fact that I was just about clear of the snow cover... and probably could have (should have?) continued to knock this one out that day.... ahh well discretion and all that....
