Ascent Trip ReportThought this would be a quick and easy walk, but the fresh snow made it difficult. I parked at Charlton Flat and followed the road up to the saddle, making fresh tracks in the snow along the way. The snow was almost up to my knees along the road. Once at the saddle I followed the ridge up to the top, where I had to pass through snow up to my waist. Not pleasant. The view of snow-capped peaks like Waterman and Twin Peaks made the hike almost worth it. Next time, I'll wear snowshoes.
