Ascent Trip Report

Snow on trail and had to follow tracks of other hikers from before. Parts of the trail were clear of snow but much of it had either snow or ice on it. Sky was clear starting out around 06:00am and summitted around 11:30am. On the way down a snow storm blew in pretty quickly and we got caught in it. By the time we got to treeline, we were out of the storm.
