Ascent Trip Report

Started up trail at 10 am. Temps were just below freezing at the car. Took 3:22 to summit and 2:55 to descend. The trail was frozen most of the way with spotty ice patches starting around 3500'. Past the junction, the ice became continuous then transitioned to powdery snow. There were some tracks headed up the snow but the pack was not established that well (it is now). The fresh snow made the top 1200' more strenuous and time-consuming. We used traction on the way down.
