Ascent Trip Report

One of my first winter summits. Good packed trail most of the way up, needed some snowshoes to keep from postholing around halfway. Lost the main summer trail following some ski tracks around and eneded up climbing a different ridge then normal to reach the Dome summmit. Went down along the trail and passed the fake Dome summit and continued on down the trail. Wind blown at the top with very little snow, mostly rocks and moss. Switched back to boots with spikes and continued that way except for the section on the way down requiring the snowshoes. Overall good time to hit the trail as the skis have been packing the majority of the trail. Great views to the south of Near Point and Wolverine and Arctic Valley to the South.
