Comments
Comments: Trail wasn't broken until about 2/3 of the way up. Snow is extremely deep and expect to posthole if you don't have snowshoes. The last pitch to the side trail that brings you to the view was a bit sketchy with micro spikes and knee deep snow. The snow is very powdery and not packed down so expect to sink down to the rocks on the trail, which makes climbing over large boulders even more difficult than usual
