Ascent Trip Report

Was supposed to do this as part of a 4 Seasons Meet up but leader canceled hike due to bad weather conditions. We decided to go anyway. We were the first car into Cardigan Lodge parking lot. 4" of snow on the ground. Tricky conditions on the ledge sections, traction did not help, had to crawl in a couple of sections. Route finding to Orange and from Orange to Rimrock was required. Great hike, sun came out and gave us views for a while from Orange. Would do this hike again in nice weather.
