Ascent Trip ReportSnow began on the "trail" immediately after leaving the road at Sonora Pass. I took the "short cut" and climbed a snow tongue up to about 10,800' or so, then the trail was dry for awhile before several more snow traverses. These were mostly horizontal, but with good potential for a long slide if not careful. Met several PCTrs here. The final climb to the summit required one more upward traverse of a snow field, then dry along the ridge. No register was found. On the return I climbed over the top of Margaret Lewis, a provisional peak on peakbagger.
