Ascent Trip Report

Dayhiked this in perfect weather.
Steep snow to maybe 50 degrees at most.
Party of 5 went before me so good steps kicked in at some spots.
Several rocks bounced down right side down low. Stick to left side down low.
Used one tool for a ways - then switched to 2 tools in dagger fashion. More secure that way.
Great day in the mountains.
