Ascent Trip Report

The Worm Flows Route is snow starting about 1 mile from the Marble Mountain Sno-Park. Snowshoes are no longer needed, even on warm days. The route including the crater rim traverse does not need crampons. Crampons will be of more benefit for the traverse later in the season when the snow consolidates to ice.
