Ascent Trip ReportWith the amount of snow that was on the ground, the ascent was almost perfect. There were a couple of times that I was up to my waist, but, I will gladly take that over the loose scree and talus I have heard this peak houses. Overall the climb was not too tough and the navigation required was fairly basic. I combined this with a summit of west craggy and managed to finish both before some bad weather moved in.
