Comments
Comments: Was really hoping to bag this one today. Got a late start and was hoping it was broken out.... it was.... for a while. Down low the snow was baking a bit in sun and clumping on the snowshoes - became VERY tedious.

Once the actual uphill started, snow was just too deep for me to pack it down so I called it a day - about .75mi from summit.
