Ascent Trip ReportSean was working at MOG so just Ava and i. Did a drive by of MB - toad and TH still closed but must have been 60 cars lined up on the top narrow road and around to the other....didn’t feel like adding to that....hope they open it soon for the neighborhoods sake
Drove over to Little Si and found a spot. Ordered new Discover Pass online and headed up. Melting trail for first little steep part then once on flat in trees slick enough that I just put on the spikes... and kept them on until where just before the boulder loop trail meets with the little Si trail. Super windy on the drive and some parts of the trail but lovely and sunny. Not nearly as windy up top as anticipated. Decided to look at the gully since never had in the snow. Not quite as snow filled as I would have expected. Met a guy carrying ice ax and had crampons strapped to his pack. Said he went up but that last part (20ft?) was icy and sketchy...didn’t recommend.
Will think about it in the future and bring gear in case sometime to make Si a bit more interesting;-)
Saw some folks on the new/regular trail so that parking lot must be at least partially accessible.
