Ascent Trip Report

the Crawford area got 16" of fresh snow a day or two earlier. The Crawford path had only a couple people go up the previous day with bare boots judging by the 12" deep foot holes all the way to the top. Our group had our snowshoes so we decided to break trail the appropriate way. The trail had many large blow downs that we had to maneuver around. There were 11 of use so we all took turns breaking trail. The top was in the clouds and was very windy and cold so there were no views this day and we didn't stay long at the top.
