I parked where the Mosquito Pass road becomes 4wheel. I used snowshoes for the entire round trip. The lower part of the road is mostly hard packed. It becomes deep near the turnoff to the North London Mine. The road up to the Kuss London saddle is very deep with drifts. From the saddle to the summit is a mixture of hard pack and drifted snow. It was windy and lightly snowing all day with limited visibility many times. It took 6 hours to reach Mosquito summit and 3 hours to descend. I did not go further than the Mosquito summit. The wind had completely filled my ascent trench and so I enjoyed establishing a descent trench which has already been obliterated.
