Ascent Trip Report

Not too cold - 20s and light falling snow, minimal wind on the way up since it was protected. As we came out of trees - it was white out conditions - blowing snow and fog, winds of 30+ mph, temps of 10F but wind chills of -20 or more. Trail was impossible to find. Without a GPS, would not have found summit or way back down!
