Ascent Trip Report

My first hike in snow. According to the sign, the steep part of the trail is 1 mile. I'm convinced, however, that it's at least 10 miles if, in fact, it ever ends. I finally stopped about 10-15 minutes from the summit. Lee went on ahead and reported back. I should've put on my spikes sooner. I was slipping a lot going uphill. Due to falling, I got snow in my gloves so my fingers were really cold. I ended up putting my dry pair of Darn Tough socks on my hands and it totally helped.
