Ascent Trip Report

Trail had well packed snow, used snowshoes part way, then Hillsounds/Kahtoolahs. I used snowshoes from the junction where the last mine goes straight up, as it was badly postholed and I needed the stability. Snow and wind prevented good views. Not a very difficult hike. The friendly chickadees were out at Marcy Dam on the way back and provided for some nice photos. Many other hikers on the trail.
