Ascent Trip Report

Was a very difficult hike in the winter, even with crampons and snowshoes. Ended up hiking the loop, which the trail was not broken on, the trail was poorly marked, and the snow surface made for going downhill about as difficult as going up. Weather at the summit was not awful, but did not linger long because of the temperatures.
