Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful weather - cold, calm, and sunny. Snow depth varied from a few inches on the rocky switchbacks to knee-deep in drifts. Crampons and axe were helpful for getting up thin snow/ice/rock on last pitch of Headlee Pass; necessary for the last 400 ft to the summit, which was mostly hard, wind-scoured ice.
