Yup...we started at Rte 4 the first time...made it to the summit...but turned back before we made it down to the saddle. We wanted to hit the horn but it was too slippery without any type of crampon. So...we've got ourselves microspikes...and we are going to try again.
We will probably hit it at 4:00 or 5:00 am so we have time to hit the horn before it gets dark...again.
