Ascent Trip Report

Took Eightmile Creek trail, rough with lots of roots and rocks, and and lost it under snow at just over 3600'. Annette decided not to do the top, she stopped about a half mile before the pass and I kicked steps to the pass so she come up later.

I then turned towards the peak angling up to the NE ridge, good snow but a little soft. Hit the ridge a couple hundred feet below the top, easy except for the last 75 feet where I pulled out the ice axe.
My dog Zoe made it so couldn't have been too bad!
Awesome views all around, exceptionally nice really.
