Ascent Trip Report

Hit snow a couple miles in on the Lake Annette trail just after the first set of switchbacks.

Hiked to about 1/3 mile to the lake before donning our microspikes and heading up to the top of the ridge. The snow was spring fare - slushy yet easy to kick steps in. Ice axes helped.
