Ascent Trip Report

A big snowstorm had left over a foot on the valley floor and spindrifts flowing down the redrock walls. It was nearly 0 degrees at the Weeping rock TH and a great use of microspikes for the icy trail. Luckily I brought my snowshoes as on the steep switchbacks up to the east rim nobody had yet broken trail so I got to have Observation point and the benchmark to myself after some hard work. The benchmark just to the north provides even better views up into the bowels of the narrows environs.
