Ascent of Frozen Head on 2015-12-29
|Date:||Tuesday, December 29, 2015|
|Ascent Type:||Unsuccessful - Turned Back|
| Elevation:||2950 ft / 899 m|
Ascent Trip ReportHad a late start due to unforeseen circumstances, resulting in an inability to summit before the park closed. Came within 0.7 miles of the summit, but didn't want the car towed. Such is the early sunset in winter. Don't live too far away so will try again another day.
The area had substantial rain over a one week period so the ground was thoroughly soaked, and much of the trail was covered with flowing water from nearby streams, slowing pace. Great weather though--low 60s, clear sky and lots of visibility. Other than the water, the trail was relatively easy.
