Ascent Trip Report

second stop along a traverse from Cherry Canyon to Hellhole Canyon Trail Head. Lots of snow on the ground from the storm the night before. Stats start from Goat BM; and includes all stops (lunch, deer sighting etc). As we started ascending the SE ridge, the ground became completely covered in graupel within minutes. 15 minutes later decided to abort due to near white out conditions and daylight remaining to get down to the desert floor.
