| Elevation:||4656 ft / 1419 m|
Ascent Trip ReportTook out some new snowshoe-ers on an 'adventurous intro' trek. Beautiful day! Carried extra training weight for planned MSH ascent following week, including extra gear and 4L to simulate tent. First sunburn (minor) of the year - not sure whether to be happy or displeased about that.
We planned to go off the NW side of the peak and pick up the road back to the TH, but there are steep drops and rock bands on that aspect, so we ended up heading south and the circling around. Lots of extra gain, as we navigated down to Still Creek at approx 3600' before turning north.
Another great crew!
