Ascent Trip Report

... pitch up to first knob from the Jackrabbit Trail was very steeply icy while once over the trail became more difficult to find and follow in much deeper unbroken snow, once first found a slow follow lead on to a lunch time summit viewpoint, out of a breezy wind, to a still frozen and undisturbed Lake Placid below.
