Ascent Trip Report

Started from the parking lot on the west side of the peak. Went up the Curtis-Ormsbee trail. We wore snowshoes almost the whole way but only needed them for small sections during the ascent. Crampons would have been a better choice for the conditions, I think.

Stayed at the summit for half an hour in the warm sun. Descended down the more direct red trail to the parking area. Great day for a hike.
