Ascent Trip Report

Snowshoe Lake route now 6200 vert to summit. The road is indeed washed out, but a good path has been cut until it meets up with the old road that is slowly being reclaimed by the forest. Fast travel until the confluence with Verdun creek and the south branch and the so called "manway." It is easy to follow but meanders and is a bit bushy with lots of logs to step over. It was definitely never a developed trail. Gorgious camp at Snowshoe Lake, easy 3rd class up with little scree, nice views and lots of alpine larch.
