Ascent Trip ReportBrutal climbing conditions. Very icy in places, others were dry. My microspikes broke on the way up, and the descent was an unpleasant affair. Out of the wind the weather was quite mild, but in exposed areas it was very chilly. Hiked with two friends. There were about a dozen other people that we saw on the mountain today.
