Ascent Trip ReportRandom Group. First trip for Backpacker Magazine. Monica, whichway, Mike L, Kevin, and Janice.
Great weather - warm temperatures with no wind. Sunny, clear skies.
The snow was deep but the trails were hard-packed. Able to go the entire way up with just MicroSPIKES. Used ASODs to slide on the way down.
Planned to go to North Hancock too but had to turn back when one in the group had a difficult time getting to the summit of South Hancock.
