Ascent Trip Report

Hiked this one from Brighton Ski Resort with Duane and Keith. The lifts were closed, so we trudged up in snowy weather. Preston was quite fun, with a few small snow-covered cliffs to ascend. We then followed the ridge to Clayton Peak. Clayton was in near-whiteout conditions on the summit. We then followed some of our favorite ski runs back to the car. Wonderful winter ascent in snowy weather. Pictures
