Ascent Trip Report

A little washout on the way to the trailhead. High clearance vehicle recommended.

Snow around 4400 ft

Ridge was composed of hard snow. No crampons or snow shoes needed.

Crossed several slide paths.

Went up the wrong slope surrounded by steeps sides, decided to turn around due to wet snow and fear of wet avalanches by the time we were heading back if we were to continue to the summit.

Would go if there is less snow.
