Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful, crystal clear day. Started at 7:15am after sleeping in the car at the trail head. Snow was packed into a solid boot pack, traction needed. Wind was pretty much a non-issue, some gusts here and there once on the last push to the summit. Melty and slushy snow on the way down made for a slow descent. Great day!
