Ascent Trip Reportfirst of 2 peaks today...2nd one was Camels Hump.
this was a packed out trail hike in boots until the summit cliff on the Long Trail.
We then switched to crampons and ice axe for security. Winds were light and day turned out warmer than the forecasted. We stayed in crampons to the bottom since there were slick spots going down in just boots. Went with friend Todd C. and we completed hike in 4 hours even on the north side Long Trail.
