Ascent Trip Report

Snowshoe from Horsethief Canyon TH, lots of snow from all the recent storms. The Horsethief Canyon trail seems to be traveled frequently and it was easy for us to follow through the snow, however, from the point we left the trail to climb Wade we were breaking trail. Final approach up Wade was nasty, lots of brush. We went straight up the west face but in retrospect I suspect coming at it from the north would be better. Trip was only 12 miles/3000+ feet of gain but took 7 1/2 hours. Love doing the OGUL's in the snow! Full TR is HERE.
