Ascent Trip Report

tried to climb/ski the west face of Democrat. a great coular ski but howling winds and swirling snow with no signs of stopping turned us back at about 13,500 Too bad because the hardest climbing was behind us, and climbing the coular after the 3 inches of new snow was a serious workout. a beautiful place that I want to go finish the route when conditions are better
