Ascent Trip Report

Follow our descent track from the peak to the pass to stay on the use trail, which was still easy to follow with a light dusting of snow on it. Descent track is slightly more west / climber's left / skier's right. We missed it in one spot on the ascent that led to a sidehill that was fine in the frozen snow and heather but would have been easier on the use trail. Snow never got more than ankle deep this time of year. Nothing over class 2 up or down, very enjoyable route. Appleton Pass campsite was cold but pleasant in the trees that broke up the wind for us. With 14 hours of darkness, we had plenty of time in our sleeping bags this trip... I had time to explain prominence to Jared and he is now a peakbagger. Pics
