Ascent Trip Report

spent nite at Nesowadnehunk and got up to snow and froz. precip. headed up Coe and slabs below slide were covered with froz runoff. got about 200 yds above OJI link when one creeper came off leaving me stranded in the middle of a frozen slab and no choice but to make a lunge for the scrub. didnt quite make it and took a 20 ft slide into (luckily) a frozen moss hummock. turned around back to Marston trail. up to No. Bro. was treacherous with snow covering ice, summit in winter conditions. back down and over to So. Bro. no time for Coe. time on trail 8:30
