Ascent Trip Report

Lots of snow on the ground, towards the top was a pain for the last .5 miles particularly - Tough to get a grip so a lot of sliding backwards. I used crampons and carried an ice axe; probably snowshoes and ski poles would have worked a little better. Took me 2.5 hours from the greeley pond parking lots to summit - most of that time being in the last 1.5 miles. The descent was much quicker - in about one hour.
