Ascent Trip Report

We carried ice axe, crampon, and snowshoes but didn't use them. A good pair of mountain boots should be enough. The snow is firm and easy to walk on. During mid-day the top layer will melt and get soft.

Also on Poison Flat trail go straight cross the stream or just a little south of straight across for easy crossing. Then the trail goes between the bog on the left and rocks on the right. We missed this in the predawn darkness and had soggy trek across the flats.
