Ascent Trip Report

2011-02-26: Snowshoed & broke Green Trail to Yellow Trail Jct reaching summit plateau where skier tracks followed yellow trail loop in the earlier morning's fresh powder (exited a southern going blue trail?). Views all around plateau's edge, summit interior. With afternoon sun powder snow become sticky some, still an easy downhill jog back along across deer sign everywhere along the way.

2011-04-30: nice jog up wide trail to a plateau edge of trails and views.

2015-03-29: ... finally spotted Red Trail Jct with Green Trail on my descent from summit, so followed its way back up to plateau learning to me a new path, a decent spring day with the last snows of the season while enjoying views to Albany.
