Ascent Trip Report

CMC hike/snowshoe. This was my 5th time on The Q. We started out at 8AM, reached the summit around 11:20, got back to the cars at 1:30. It started out cloudy with flurries, but then the sun came out and it warmed up nicely. Unseasonably warm for early February. It was pretty windy on the summit. There was plenty of snow on the ground, and it was a tough hike, but successful.
