Ascent Trip ReportThis was the winter that was not a winter. The snow level was like 4000 feet in the Cascades in February which is improbable. So I go over to the San Juans to bag this peak expecting a temperate climate and no snow. Instead, the road is closed due to snow due to 800 feet. I guess the wind whipping off the ocean gives this a lower snow level than inland. I walked the gated, snow covered and empty road to the summit.
