Ascent Trip Report

I had Nippletop and Blake to finish the 46ers so the plan was to finish both. It was much longer than expected because of snow and ice. My girlfriend had a hard time with the ice and our micro spikes were not sharpened. Ice was really hard so it wouldn't grab. I've done Dial before and it looked much nicer in winter. Now there was a lot of mud and cleaned blowdowns, trees looked weak instead of nice and fluffy. The view on top is impressive and going up we can see Dix and the whole ridge of Wolfjaws to Gothics.
