Ascent Trip Report

The snow line set in around 3000 feet, and following around 50 people meant compact icy trails. Thanks to my newly donned yaktrax i stayed on my feet for the rest of it, while Maverick helped to pull Eric up. Beautiful views, unfortunately the back side of haystack is again covered in snow so it will have to wait for next time. On the way down, I removed my foot chains and slid down the first half. Much faster than the way up.
