Ascent Trip ReportDayhiked the East Ridge as a snow climb. Lots of tracks right up until where the ridge got a little more serious. After that only my tracks and a lone coyote almost for the entire last mile of the ridge.
My first flight since the pandemic started (and I get free flights).
Had a great time - blue skies, low wind and the ridge was just enough to catch your attention a little.
My 11th climb done from the book " Colorado Snow Climbs".
