Ascent Trip Report

Only party to make it to the summit, everyone else turned around at the rim or below. Parking lot at trailhead wasn't plowed out yet, so I parked at the pull out at devils lake just east of the trailhead. Was on snow from the road to the summit, white out conditions on summit so only summited because of GPS.

Snow was firm in the trees, we used snowshoes in the flat above the trees, but they weren't really needed in the morning, but were nice in the afternoon when it was more slushy. switched to K-10 crampons above 9k.
