Ascent Trip Report

A long hike from the Loj, but Marcy gave me great weather. Trail was well broken in and easy to follow. Plenty of others out on it also. Near the summit the trail breaks down but we could see the top and just kept going up. Snowshoes the whole way (required, but necessary). Didn't need crampons but had them - heard they were sometimes needed.
