Ascent Trip Report

Started at Loj trailhead. Staff at office said wear snowshoes. Went to Wright first then Algonquin. Snowshoes until summiting Wright, then switched to crampons for ease (some ice and technicality of rocky terrain, others there used just snowshoes). VERY windy. Beautiful views. Descended then went on to Algonquin. Trail well defined.
