Ascent Trip Report

Calm and cool in trees, windy from first saddle on. Very windy at second saddle, where Matt and I broke off from our group. Hiked up and back from sub peak, Mount Ian in the time it took everyone else to have a lunch break. Headed up to Wrightson summit from there. My first time on dry trail anywhere here, very nice trail overall. Snow on ground in northern slopes still, quite surprised. Great contrast from my previous summit here 1.5 months earlier in fresh snow.
