Ascent Trip Report

Well we did Wildcat A & D today.....Went up 19 mile which was broken out....when we hit the ridge trail there were 1 set of tracks going up.....Snow was deep fluffy so it was still a struggle going up.....We met the guys coming down they said they just made it to A & turned around.....We hit A & then decided to go for D ....We took turns breaking trail till about 1/2 way there when we ran into some skiers going the other way....They really didn't pack the trail but at least now we knew where the trail was....We hit D then down the polecat trail

Wow what a workout today I am beat but what a hike
