Ascent Trip Report

Didn't have the time to summit since I was meeting a friend for afternoon tea/coffee. Hot day for January in Utah. Wore a t-shirt the whole way up. Nice to get above the inversion of the SL Valley too. The trail was packed down and snow levels were low. It had been a while (almost 2 weeks) since fresh snow, so avalanche danger was pretty low. Nice quick solo hike to escape into the mountains for a morning....
