Ascent Trip Report

Our plan was to climb Mt Winchell after we decided to abort our U Notch attempt of North Palisades due to avalanche risk. We aborted our Mt. Winchell climb when the very unpredictable weather made a turn for the worse. An incredibly fun trip despite the bad weather and avalanche concerns.
