Ascent Trip Report

I started my hike with Nancy Damboise & Brian Platt.....We put on our snowshoes right from the start as we knew it would need them car to car....We took the Greeley Ponds tr which had been broken outby a couple before us....We caught up to them at the Osceola Tr jct...From there we broke trail..After awhile we were met by to guys carrying snowboards...They continued to break trail & we switched position from time to time.....I was having trouble getting grip...It was like 1 step forward & slide down 3 ....By the time I had gotten 2.1 miles in the hike it was still steep & I was done....Brian & Nancy made it to East Osceola & then turn back

Well I guess I'll have to go back ....Maybe LOL
