Ascent Trip Report

Decided to grab Old Snowy as part of a multi day drip in Goat Rocks area. Originally came in from Lily Basin trailhead and stayed at Heart Lake then continued to Cispus Basin. Backtracked a bit and started from camp setup at Cispus Basin. From there the trail was maintained with only snow crossings in a few areas but were completely manageable without the need for traction devices. Scramble to the top. Conditions were perfect.

***Note: If coming in from Lily Basin there are snowfields past Heart Lake that would recommend using crampons + poles/ice axe to help get across***
