Ascent Trip Report

Continued Presi over Adams, Jefferson, & Washington to Lakes Hut. Views were nearly non-existent. Snow, sleet, rain, ~30F, 45+ mph winds. Had a great time.

A few years later climbing Jefferson from the same approach I began to doubt I summitted this time. I only remembered a rock pile and a couple of trail signs, not this immense mountain you climb from Edmand's Col. When I reached the top and saw the rock pile and the trail signs, I realized that this was a success!
