Comments
Comments: First ~2 miles were lightly broken (thank you to whomever you are!), but after that it didn't look like anyone had been up there since snow started falling. We made it within about 0.4 miles of the summit, but decided to turn back due at a super steep cliffy section that probably would have required crampons. Honestly, we were just exhausted from breaking trail at that point and wanted to leave before the freezing rain really got going. Hopefully the next person has an easier time summiting this one now that most of the trail is lightly broken.
