Ascent Trip Report

Started out on the Becker Hollow trail noticed a tiny little bit of snow on the ground here and there by the parking lot, but thought the trail would be fine without crampons boy was I wrong. As as I ascended the already steep trail more and more snow covered it until not having crampons or snow gear with me or even my trekking poles that I had left in my car I had to turn back before I made one too many slips.
