Ascent Trip Report

From our camp below Ives (6100') we broke camp and headed back to the PCT at 7:30 am. We stashed our overnight gear at the junction with the PCT and took the PCT and the side trail up to the summit of Old Snowy. It was brutally windy with wind chill the last few hundred feet. The trail was snow free with the exception of one short traverse on a snow patch with a very icy 20' stretch near the end.

After a rest break out of the wind we continued on to Ives...

Camp to summit: 2:40 (including stop to stash gear)
