This was a tough but enjoyable hike. After flying in from R.I., i drove to the trailhead and started hiking around 1pm. Lots of snow, windy and colder than I thought, I made it back around 8pm with my headlamp. My water bottles had long since frozen solid. I was the first signing the register since the past fall
Solo'd this very enjoyable route. I didn't see a single person. The 5th class screw-up was the best part of the climb.
