Ascent Trip Report

My goal was to reach the Granite summit by this route which would be a different way for me. It was a hard hike up to the benchmark which I found under about 6 inches of snow. It was too late and travel through the snow too difficult for me to proceed another 0.8 miles to Granite Mountain high point so I turned back.
