Ascent Trip Report

Solo hike to the summit. Snow on the ground until I reached Galena Falls. The snow started to break up about half mile towards the peak was snow free. It was windy on top, however the stone wind breaks were very helpfull to have lunch and enjoy the 360 degree views. Snow shoes used on the lower half of the trip once I started to post hole later in the day. 7 hour round trip.
