Ascent Trip Report

Climbed up a snowy ski slope to the beautiful ridge of this mountain -- it was scoured by glaciers. Hiked down the ridge to the Horn -- found an abandoned, collapsed tent filled with soaked gear along the way. When I turned around at the Horn to go back to Saddleback, I could see big grey clouds rushing towards me. I was in a roaring blizzard by the time I got back to the ski slope, but I dropped below the storm quickly when I started down the ski slope. Back at the bottom, the weather had turned almost sunny.
