Willey Range Trail from Ethan Pond  Sucess!

Wanna see an easy start can turn into a relentlessly steep hike?
Try the Willey Range Trail from Ethan Pond. Although I hear A-Z is pretty grueling as well. Spent the night on the summit-3RD sickest electrical storm of my life (starting around sunset and ending at some ungodly hour of the morning)with bolts hitting summits all around. Torrential rain and extremely loud thunder made for quite an interesting nights sleep or lack thereof. Trip report to follow.

It was very cold and the ice was brittle and cracked easily. We went up 3 pitches or so and bailed before the top. Our feet and hands were freezing.

First peak ever - used it as a warmup for Washington. Muddy and wild. About 4 hours roundtrip with 15 minutes at the peak.
