Ascent Trip Report

A bit of snow cover (1-2 inches) up until about the third road crossing, then packed snow and some ice. I used just microspikes with no problem. Super fast climb. No one else on the trail, but looked like others had been there recently. Light snow falling. There is no trailhead register. You'll see a small sign that says "Latham Trail to Fire Tower".
