Ascent Trip Report

No snow for the lower half, just an open steep forest. Switched to snowshoes where the ridge flattened out. Hit one where a cliff forced us left through some trees. Beautiful day with unique 360 views. Descent required several transitions to put showshoes on/off, especially on the steep sections. Would have felt better if I had brought my axe. Felt more like a spring snow pack than January. Saw no signs of recent traffic.
