Ascent Trip Report

Took Eagle Peak trail from Longmire until the snow hid the trail about a third of the way up. Crossed a snow bridge across the creek and followed the shallow ridge up. Did not catch the saddle, but took south side of peak which included 1 pitch of about 5.6 climbing about 60ft. Roped up across final short ridge to summit. Stayed roped up while on the summit because of cornice danger and shear drops.
