Ascent Trip Report

SNOW! Intermittent from parking lot through around 3800 then constant. Gaiters, boots and poles recommended. Lots of slipping and sliding. Icy towards the top, tiny cornices approaching the South Peak sub-summit. No forseeable accessible path to Mt. Margaret summit, lots of icy snow, no trail, runout w/o an ice axe or crampons would be bad. Slog on wet-to-hard-snow. Encountered a couple, random skier and woman from afar.
