Ascent Trip Report

Two-night trip with John Negley and his boys, Matthew and Mark. It snowed hard for a good share of Saturday night. Had a few route-finding issues on summit day and were really slowed down by 8-10" of fresh snow. Glad we had snowshoes. Turned back around 1000 ft. below the summit.
