Early Winter Summit Bid Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2007
I made it solo to approx. 13k on the south ridge from the West Willow Creek 4x4 parking area before I got turned around by 50+ mph winds and a hellish whiteout which dumped 6"-10" of snow in less than an hour. A great experience in a true wilderness area!
