Ascent Trip Report

Left car at 0430, return to car at 2010. Summit at 1330. Snow began en masse at 4,200'. Snowshoes from Colonial-Nece Col to west ridge and back to the col. Final 100-200' of the summit was still littered with ample snow/ice making route finding less than hospitable. Tremendous weather; clear, calm, and warm.
