Ascent Trip ReportFirst trip with our reacquisitioned splitboards. A disappointing year for snowfall and an early wrong turn made this much more a hike on foot than skinning. Despite shortcomings, the view even from 11,000 feet is amazing allowing you to look on anything between the Buttermilks and White Mountains.
