Ascent Trip Report

Almost didn't hike today....Just as we were leaving Manchester it started to rain...On way up it would rain then stop...But as we turned on 302 we could see summit of Washington & By the time we got to Ethan Pond Trailhead it was still nice.
So we got ready & started around 8:39....Ethan Pond tr was in good shape & we bare booted it....Then we hit Willey Range Tr which isn't use as much & started to post hole..It also started to snow at this point...So we decided to put on our snowshoes to keep us up on the snow....Boy is this trail steep & then we hit the ladders...We kept our snowshoes on going up ladders ...we just took our time & made sure of our footing & had no problems.....Trail is still steep till you hit the summit of Willey. It was really starting to snow hard at this point
We opted out of going back down the way we came & just kept going on the Willey Range Tr over Field then to the A-Z Trail When we were on the Willey Range Trail to A-Z it was snowing pretty good & we got over an inch of snow when is winter gonna end LOL & then it was down to the Highland Center...About a mile from the Highland Center it started to rain & it was beginning to get miserable but at least we were almost done.....We were able to get a ride back to our car..All in all it was a nice hike
