Ascent Trip Report

Glad I left the bike at home. Snow and ice started early. Going to south was easy since a work truck had driven all the way up. Dudes were working on one of the towers.

Followed Dennis Poulon's track. The short traverse between summits was annoying. 30-40 cm of snow, lots of down trees, lots of ups and downs. I thought I saw a path a couple times but lost it. Perhaps it's more obvious in summer. Road was fine.

There are hidden paths on the mountain. I saw footprints coming in from the south about a klick below the south summit. No views from South, limited views from North.
