Ascent Trip Report

Conditions were spectacular on Saturday so we were disappointed we didn't get in a day earlier. They were just as good Sunday morning as we started out. The ice was thick and plasticy, I led the first pitch and Gabe led the second. We climbed pretty fast, especially on the easy second pitch. By the time we topped out, we were in the clouds. Pretty easy work to the summit then back down Lion Head to the cabin and road.
