Ascent Trip Report

No, we didn't turn back on this extremely easy peak because of our ability, but rather a damn NPS trail closure due to "dangerous" snow the final 1/4 mi to the summit. I debated as to whether I should even bother to log this on bagger, but it is a grudge peak for us now. The snow looked pretty tame for mountaineers like us, but I guess your average tourist would slip and break a bone or something.... Ugh...
