Ascent Trip Report

Cloudy, foggy day but not too cold or windy, so went for the ridge anyways with M&M's meetup hike. Took our time and enjoyed a nice hike with a good group. Crampons needed - tons of ice everywhere and no views along the ridge, but nice to out above treeline in winter conditions. Met Bob and Geri on Lincoln.
