Ascent Trip Report

My last Trailwrights peak did not happen easily. The way in was easy enough, except the last 0.2 miles with some very bad blowdown patches. These made the going slow and navigation was almost impossible. 0.3 miles up and back took 1.5 hours. The trail conditions were the most aggrivating I have ever seen ... 2 inches of snow on top of rocks and leaves is a wicked pain in the ass. I hope it snows a few feet before my next hike. It felt so good to grab N. Isolation but it felt even better when the hike was over.
