Ascent Trip Report

Two peak hike including Morton Peak (three if you include Peak 4030). Snow from a few days past covered most of the route but is was in great condition. A bit muddy on the way down from Morton (and several more people). Passed a few folks on the way up. Beautiful snow on the summit of Morton. From Morton we jumped down the ridge and headed over to Cram. This route was snow covered as well most of the way. Beautiful powder coming down ridge after leaving Morton. Route is easy enough to follow. About half way out the route follows an old road bed that parallels the old firebreak. Great day was had by all. Sure enjoy these lower peaks in the snow! Stats include Morton.
