Ascent Trip Report

I just got tired of snowshoeing in powdery snow where ever step I would sink down. 5 hours to go just 2 miles.

Starting point was Kingston Canyon Rd. (NF12). I walked to the end of Basin Canyon Rd, NF43494. Then I climbed my left bank, NE ridge and continued to the NE saddle of the summit.
