Ascent Trip Report

This was a very difficult hike in 6 to 9" of snow, while snowing, with snowdrifts well over a foot during most of the hike - lots of trees/vegetation, ice/snow coated, weighed down - serious obstacles in many areas. I was officially winter hike "schooled". I'm fortunate I made it home relatively safe. I bit off way more than I could chew with this one.
