Ascent Trip Report

After leaving SC xc ski/snowshoe trip on Sunny Slopes, I drove across the 395 and up to Sno-Park on the Rock Creek road. Snowshoed up the road to find WTC LB Group 2. Got to Rock Creek Lake and found tracks going around the left side which I followed for 0.5mi until it became clear that they had gone there for their morning hike and skills. Turned around and went around the right side of the lake until I found their camp in the trees (Group Campsite). Talked to a student who was resting in his tent, found out the group was practicing arresting further around the lake. Continued until I met the group and talked to them for awhile before returning to the car. 8mi, 1150' gain, 4 hour round trip, all on snowshoes.
