Ascent Trip Report

Turned back at the crossing of Mt. Plesant Brook due to dangerous trail conditions (the trail from there was covered in one to two inches of ice, and my microspikes wouldn't grip it). That makes three failed attempts of Eisenhower; I got closer to the top with each try. Until next summer, Mt. Eisenhower.
