Ascent Trip ReportDid a Winter ascent/ snowshoe of Mount Lillian, Lillian South Peak, and Tronsen ridge. I started just north of Blewitt Pass and followed a ski/snowmobile trail until it crossed over Tronsen Creek. I then left the trail and followed the west side of the creek until I intersected another ski/snowmobile trail near Haney meadow. This section required a lot of weaving around fallen trees, as the entire mountain had burnt the previous summer.
From Haney Meadow I cut straight up to the top of Mount Lillian South before heading NE along the ridge to Mount Lillian North. My route then looped along the crest of Tronsen Ridge all the way back to where I first came out near Haney Meadow.
