Ascent Trip Report

I did this as a snowshoe with the Colorado Mountain Club. The snow thinned out for the last 300 feet (or so) to the summit, so we had to remove our 'shoes. It was an overcast day, but we still had great views of the Twin Sisters and Longs Peak. A few days later, we got hit with a massive snowstorm (The Blizzard of 2003) down in Denver.
