Ascent Trip Report
Avalanche Pass trail ascent; Lake Arnold/L.Morgan Porter Trail descent. Hard packed snow the entire trail with some icy sections. The multiple ladders were either covered partially or completely with hard packed snow/ice. However, near the summit, there were sections of massive ice making it very challenging. Used Hillsound trail crampons, but more aggressive crampons could have been used at this point. A very beautiful trail with a lot of changing scenery.
