Ascent Trip Report

Got to the trail junction and the first clearing, but had to turn back 0.8mi away from the summit due to excessive postholing and spruce walls. Navigation difficult, lots of blowdowns. Exhausting day.

Total altitude gain 2700 ft in 9 miles - more than many "successful" ascents!
