Ascent Trip Report

Pretty straightforward route. A few inches of fresh snow over packed snow on the ground. Wore spikes and had no problems. It was about 30 degrees when I headed up, but at the tower it was super cold and windy with massive ice build up around the windows. White out, so no views. Took it a bit slower than usual, as I had twisted my ankle on rocky Azure right before.
