Walked road all the way to no trespassing gate without snowshoes. Took wind blown slopes straight up from there to first summit on ridge at 13400 ft. From here to actual summit crampons and axe were nice to have. Lots of snow on ridge and deep in spots. Mostly bulletproof snow to climbers right with ankle breaking postholing here and there.

Congrats on the summit.

Thank you Cide! It was a fun summit. Not sure about pack size. My friend is the one pictured.

About how long was the round-trip time with current conditions?
