Ascent Trip Report

Climbed a chilly but sunny last day of winter 1996. It was so much fun. Had snowshoes, but when you'd step off a trail, you'd posthole up to your knees! It was insane in the membrane. Nictitating membrane. Anyway, it was fun, and the slide down was fast. Good thing, there was like 3 min of sunlight left when I hit the car.
