Ascent Trip ReportWe set out just after 10 AM and were at the summit at about 11:45 AM. The hike was surprisingly short. The signpost at 1.1 mile came upon us quite quickly. At the summit, we were greeted by rime ice on rocks, trees and even the small blades of grass that grew out of the cracks in the rocks. We took the snowmobile trail down and made it back to the cars at 1:10 pm. I put on the Hillsound Trail Crampons about 3/4 of the way up and kept them on for the entire descent. All of us were a bit surprised by the shortness of the hike. I would go back to Stinson to introduce others to hiking and also for a snowshoe hike.
