Ascent Trip Report

Second time up Buck, this time with a friend for his first time and from a different trailhead (Pilot's Knob). Minimal snow. Put on microspikes after about a mile or so, when it became icy. Didn't need snowshoes at all. There's a false summit about .18 mi. from true summit. Nice views from both, but much colder and windier than lower trail, of course. Several other parties on the trail.
