Ascent Trip Report

Snowy cold day for hiking. Left trail head at around 9:30 AM. Hiked non-stop to the peak to meet subzero temperatures and high winds. Took the trail from Giant over to Rocky Peak, and completed the traverse down to Rt 9. Exited at around 5:30 PM. Trails on top of RPR, including the bumps along the way were marginally marked and heavyb drifting washed out any signs of the trail in many areas. Came out using headlamps. Lost an overmitt and Jim Wallace lost his goggles.
