Ascent Trip Report

The trail and snow conditions were perfect to glide snowshoes over crust bushwacking while crampons in trail and open country worked nicely on the way up. We were two looping the peaks around Beacon Reservoir - South Beacon Mtn / Scofield Ridge / North Scofield Ridge / and down to the Reservoir to summit North Beacon returning back to RR Incline with a bit of sunshine finally.
