Ascent Trip Report

Took Becker Hollow Trail to summit, lower half of trail was mix between great conditions, wet and muddy conditions and some snow. Upper portion of trail had 4-6 feet of snow and once I strapped on the Denali Ascents life was great. Friend with me had no snow shoes and struggled to the top. Met a group of back packers at the summit and they were in envy wishing they had snow shoes as well. Tower wasnt open but clear skies lead to great views.
