Ascent Trip Report

Started from the park enterance lot and hiked through the campground because of the snow in the park. Caught a break with the mount Battie road being open earlier but this hike was consistent snow, up to a coupe of feet. Wore the micro spikes and then managed to lose one early on. Stopped for a while on each overlook spot and enjoyed the unreal views. Went the extra half a mile and found the summit along the ridge trail. Great spot.
