Ascent Trip Report

No views. Very steep up this section and became horrible near the top with gust and winds just below the point of making me sit down. My legs were blowing around on each step. It blew my up the slope but coming down was a face burning snow pelting mess. I was glad to get down. I don't believe I could see more than 50 feet in front of me
