Ascent Trip Report

snow on the ground the last 2.5 miles to the cabin. a couple patches of snow in the shady areas higher on the mountain, but avoidable if you chose. Cold in the morning in Deadman's Canyon, but hot on the ridge because of the sun. Great day, great views. I couldn't imagine doing this peak in the summer-must be miserably hot... This is definitely a winter peak.
