Ascent Trip Report

Poor visibility and snow-concealed trail markers led to several wrong turns, which could have easily been avoided if I was following a proper GPS track. Turned back when I saw multiple large paths of avalanche debris on the route. Definitely will return during a summer, hopefully sooner rather than later.
