Ascent Trip Report

Snow patches across trail in trees makes for some route finding or refreshing steps. Lost trail a few times on the ridge making the approach more challenging. River was very high and fast. We placed a tree across it. Worked for the ascent but returning resulted in a refreshing chest-high dip. Glad it was only a mile more to the car.
