Ascent Trip Report

We left Mount Webster with no trail towards Jackson in the snow. We went across the plateau and had a rough time getting across. We were victoms of air pockets in the snow many times . About 1/2 way we found a pair of Canadain Jay's and we preceded to feed them a part of a Cliff bar from hand, head, and even our teeth! Then we made the summit shortly after that.
