Ascent Trip Report

Started from the Fancy Pass/Missouri Lakes TH (2wd). Apparently these 2 trails make a very popular hikers bucket list loop... at least the crowds of people did all the dirty work for me by slopping through the Labor Day snow and clearing the trail :) ... once I left the trail to join the ridge that’s where the true snow slog began and was mid-calf deep until gaining the ridge. My descent route was better (joining the ridge lower).
After hitting the summit I cursed myself for my choice in footwear and the lightweight hiking boots I wore were pissing me off to the point that I could take it no longer! I jogged back down to my truck just to change into trail runners before taking back off up Fancy Pass trail to do that peak too.... Very inefficient, and very worth it.
