Ascent Trip ReportThe road to the May Lake trailhead was closed due to snow, so I had to start at Highway 120 and walk an extra 4 miles round trip. I wasn't sure that I could climb this one because of all of the snow on the ground and the lack of an ice ax and crampons. However, the snow was just perfect for walking on, sinking in only about 1". I ran into a snow cornice with a steep drop-off near the top of the mountain, but I was able to kick steps and use my trekking poles to get across it. The final summit rocks are class 2-3. Also, I did not locate a summit register.
