Ascent Trip Report

Led for mountaineers.

Started at the end of north fork road. Road/trail was icy in the first half mile, cut into the forests to catch the forest road/trail along the way. Some sections had knee deep snow which we had to wander on

Made it to Tarzan butte without needing/using snow shoes. Views were great, even though it was covered with burnt trees

From there dropped down to the notch and to the base of the ridge taking us to teanaway butte

Took a lunch break there and donned snowshoes and headed up (on hindsight should have used snowhoes earlier)

Made it to summit. Took some holiday pictures

On the way down, we took the creek option to the road (since it was completely covered with snow) and snowshoes made it easy.

Once back to the road, I was hoping it would be a easy walk down, but no. It was with fresh snow and we had to break trail/walk on soft snow till about 2 miles from the road, where it got hard ice

Longer tha expected day. But good weather and good work out
