Ascent Trip ReportSlow going, as the Giant trail was lumpy and bumpy frozen postholes just about the entire way. Some as deep as 3 feet or so. Had to watch every step. And areas of really tricky ice. RPR was packed snow but not the lumpy bumpy conditions. Used a combo of Hillsounds/Kahtoolas, crampons and snowshoes (on RPR to give feet a rest). Saw a group of 5 swiftly and impressively moving along; they were ranger students (trail register said there were 11). Some campers by the Washbowl.
