Ascent Trip Report

From the Granite ridge at about 5000' you make a beeline straight for the East side of Denny Lake, losing about 600' of elevation before ascending again on the long SW spur that will take you to the southern ridge of Low Mountain which begins about 5200'. There were some narrow sections along this ridge, but with good snow cover it was really fun and felt great. Would definitely echo what many people say, this is a good winter climb.
