Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Marsh Creek gate. Up the aqueduct road, then connecting roads and a little cross country travel up higher to avoid tank traps and for better snow. Snow started about 2300ft. About 3ft at the summit. Snow conditions varied from sloppy and soft to firm and crunchy. Sometimes stayed on top, sometimes punched through about 1 ft. Occasionally post-holed to mid thigh. Managed fine in trail runners. Only tracks I saw above 2400 ft were a single set of 1-2 week old deer tracks. Clouds were about 4000-4500 ft, so most peaks hidden.
