Ascent Trip ReportWe were originally planning to hike up Groat Mountain, but high water turned us around and we found another mountain to climb. Followed the road to just below the ridge leading to the summit, then bushwhacked up and along the ridge. We brought snowshoes, but never used them ... even in February there was only patchy snow at 4750 feet. What a winter.
