Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Needles Highway, east road closure gate. XC skied up road to Iron Creek TH. Skied part way up trail to my turnoff waypoint at 0618992, 4854828 UTM. Left skis at my turnoff, and stumbled over deadfall to peak. Was very slow going. Fun trip otherwise, great views on top. There's a cairn on top, no other signs of people. 7:34 for the round trip.
