Ascent Trip Report

Hit snow at the turnoff to Cash Prairie. Walked some road and got up to the trail and dropped down to the first saddle. I was in several feet of snow and had lost the trail. Decided that with these conditions this was going to take longer than I had planned and I would not summit before turnaround time so I bailed. South slopes were mostly snow free but the ridgeline and N side still were holding a fair amount of snow.
