Ascent Trip Report

Mountaineers trip led by Tom G. Could hardly been better (maybe the sky could have been bluer with fewer clouds)
Good navigation skills are a must, esp in winter. We made only a few minor errors if one can even call them such.
Great workout and stunning views. Would definitely recommend for other, but only on a good weather day. But would most likely not do again.

Lots of blow downs on trail to Rainy Lake. Could tell if you did later, would have to battle brush and devils club in some areas.
