Ascent Trip ReportDuring the ascent there were a few snow flakes and almost no wind until we got close to alpine level. At that point the wind picked up very quickly and by the time we reached the top it was white-out frigid conditions. If it weren't for our GPS with preloaded maps we'd never know we passed over the official marker for Pierce. We estimate the snow depth was around 5 feet as none of the markers were visible at the top.
So in summary this was an awesome hike. We made it up and back all safe.
