Ascent Trip Report

This was more strenuous than it looked on paper because of all the ups and downs along the ridge. Also, even though the snow was mostly consolidated, there were some areas of trail breaking through a firm crust with soft snow underneath. Used snowshoes from the parking lot to the summit; ice axe needed for the last 300 ft. Changed into crampons at the top to descend the steepest part, then back into snowshoes. Stayed up on the ridge the whole way, which seemed better than sidehilling along the summer trail, and got to tag 4 other minor peaks.
