Ascent Trip Report

The Webster Jackson trail was heavely used but at the intersection to Webster we were the first to make the ascent in the snow.The blue blazers were only 1 foot above the snow so thy were hard to see and we lost them about 3/4 of the way up. the snow was hard to go though and had many air pockets under it. several of them tried to eat me and my brother, one got him up to his neck! but needless to say we blazed the way and got to the summit . Great 360 views with a great view down into the Notch.
