This should have been a summer climb, but it was the day after the year's first snowstorm. COOOOOLD and Windy! Ugly summit!

An easy summit, but the snow at the willows on descent would not support climbers and experienced constant postholing into waist deep snow. Gaining the summit by the trail and ridge was easy- I should have taken the same route down for descent. But I decided to make a beeline for the trailhead on descent only to realize that snow was covering the willows. I didnt have snow shoes, but even snow shoe tracks showed lots of postholing. A normal easy 4-6 hour RT in the summer, this day it took 11 hours and was not nearly as easy as advertised because of the constant postholing. Live and learn.

My first 14er, do not let the Mountain fool you, it is bigger than it looks. If you climb it with snow on the ground you get to walk over the infamous willows.
