Ascent Trip ReportWTC Snow Travel Day. We climbed a ridge in the middle of Icehouse Canyon on our way up but then it became too icy so we descended and went over to the trail. Got some extra elevation this way. The slope/ridge to Bighorn had softened by the time we got there, but it was still icy in places underneath. Perfect weather!
