Comments
Comments: I started out in bare boots and switched to snowshoes at the start of the warden's trail for stability and televators. The warden's trail was well broken out, as was lend-a-hand. The bushwhack took me through unpacked, but shallow powder and occasional thick stuff. Upon getting up to the ridge, I had a lot of trouble finding the highpoint (the same thing happened the first time I did this summit). There is a big flat area within the same 50 foot interval and I have never looked at enough detail to know exactly where the highest point is. However, persistence paid off.

If you use my tracks to ascend, there will be two turns, where you want to stay right. I hope I am remembering that right and you will be spared my wandering paths.
