Ascent Trip Report

Hoping Beacon Rock would be open, given the dated info saying it was closed. - it was in fact closed for snow conditions, lasr assessed on 11 January. We opted to at least get up Little Beacon. The gate to the trailhead was closed so we went the extra bit up the road.

Summit was pretty nice with views and we wished we had time for Hamilton Peak, which we eyeballed the trail and most likely a false summit for.
