Ascent Trip Report

Snow had not yet been broken out and me and my hiking partner broke miles of trail only to be thwarted by a lack of blazes. We were near where the trail should veer left, but were unable to determine the trail from the woods at this point. We walked a few contours to scout for markers but unable to find any, we decided to turn back due to the slow going. We had planned on summiting upper and lower wolfjaws that day, but the conditions and lack of markers made our progress too slow.

Disappointing for sure, but a great day out in the woods nonetheless
