Ascent Trip Report

Parked on Peekamoose Rd. trailhead. Broke up to two feet of snow(increased with elevation), making it a slow go up. Took about 4 hours for 3.4 miles up. Three scramble sections. Stopped at Reconnoiter Rock, a cool glacial erratic. Last .5 miles has quite the elevation gain, a big push in 2 feet of snow. Got it done. Not much of a reward at the summit, just big boulder. There are a couple of nice viewing areas before the summit. Not enough time or energy to go onto Table.
