Ascent Trip Report

Most of us just booted to the summit. there were some spots in the willows where we punched through. Amazed at the number of people who had summited that we met around 9 am. The road was very rutted, doubtful Subaru would have made it. Stopped by snow on the road. George was doing laps on the summit pitch. Skiing down was excellent. Started from the top, but had to sideslip a few spots. Sking in the bowl was esp. good.
