Ascent Trip Report

Started at 5:00 from the lower parking lot at 2600 feet or so. Ended up walking up to about 5000 feet before there was decent snow cover. Booted up Monitor Ridge and skied Worm Flows in breezy conditions, foggy, light snow, and somewhat substandard corn. Better conditions from about 7000 feet down to 5500. Went with one other climber.
