Ascent Trip Report

The snowshoe from hell with Greg LaSala and Josh Lewis. A 150 pound ice crust + 3 feet of base powder below it + mild temps and high humidity = worst time breaking trail in snow ever. And they were nice enough to let me go the whole time except maybe 100'. Perhaps it was punishment? We didn't make it but we came back later.
