Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful weather day and good company (Heather, Kali, Cynthia, Steve/Little Brown Mushroom, Megan and Jeff) for this loop. Warm day - but snow wasn't too sticky. Well packed trails where expected - and pleasantly surprised to find that Bryan broke out to East sleeper and did some tremendous route-finding through the blow-down mess. It was spectacular to see in winter - the canopy is gone. Wow. After the summit of E Sleeper, we broke out the Sleeper Trail to the South Slide - tricky route finding here and there, but we made it - and the snow was pretty consolidated so didn't sink too deep. Rolled giant snowballs down the slide! A fun great day on one of our favorite loops.
