Ascent Trip Report

Off at 0800 from home; logging road to start completely blocked--5 extra miles to walk; snowline just at beginning of trail were road ends; snowshoes used from here to rocky section of ridge; had lengthy lunch and then decided to wander along the ridge and see how it looked; got farther and farther until weather drove us back; mixed C3+ climbing (fun); decent was much faster than expected in snow and then long slog on road
