Ascent Trip Report

Left the old trailhead about 730 a.m. Light snow at first but by the time we entered the wilderness area, getting onto the north slope of Burger Butte there was about 30 cm with a breakable crust, making it difficult to walk. Nonetheless, we made it to China Cap Creek Saddle about noon, had a snack, and decided it would be another hour to reach the summit, only 800 feet higher than we were. Decided to turn back.

Weather was pristine, clear, mostly calm, and temperatures ranging from 21*F to 40*F. A nice walk, regardless.
