Ascent Trip Report

This was my first time up here this year due to unusual snowfall in the Willamette Valley which didn't melt off quickly due to the cold. It would have been a nice climb on these cold days, but my time was spent keeping my house and kids out of trouble. While the melt was now on, most of the trail was covered in wet snow and ice with minimal amounts of mud I usually find here in winter. Tracks in the snow suggested a number of people had been up recently, but I saw no one on this climb. There were no views from the top due to fog.
