Ascent Trip Report

Another winter peak done...Did this one with Brian his 1st 4,000 footer since his surgery.

We or should I say I picked this one cause I thought this would be an easy one LOL ...I forgot that this trail Dicey Mills is steeper than I remember LOL ...Well we made it .

We decided to use just microspikes & it was the right choice ....We could have used snowshoes maybe at the top but that was it .... It was a cold day but the views at the lookout spot were spectacular ..

Well 16 down 32 to go :-) ....8.9 miles 6hrs 16 min
