Ascent Trip Report

There was enough parking at the base camp but once we were done there was a parking lot full and more people trying to get parking. Hiked the Wentworth Trail up and down. This is a great hike. Strenuous at time due to straight up. There is a viewpoint and then a false summit but use altimeter to determine where the true summit is. There is a cairn on a rock to determine the summit. Well packed but still need some spikes. Used Snow shoes the entire time. Some used micro spikes.
