Peakbug and I followed the ridge from Hicks and did some contouring to find a good place to make the final ascent. It was a nice day and this was a fun off-trail hike. We took a fairly direct descent path to get down to our vehicle, which worked well.
Charged through the snow up the NE slopes directly from the parking area. Bummed that the summit was indistinct and shrouded in trees, but found nice views to the south and east by wondering around a bit.
