Ascent Trip Report

Had bare trail until start of Twilight Park Trail where it was pretty icy all the way to the summit.It was totally bare footing descending south side of mountain. Enjoyed view over to Indian Head, Twin and Sugarloaf from south side meadow. This mountain has obviously been tough on airplanes. Saw parts and/or wreckage at three different locations. Had entire mountain to myself. #28/35.
