Must park at lower TH. There are huge drifts all the way to the upper Th, that didn‘t stop some from trying but the farthest any tire tracks made it was about 1/4 mile up. There is a decent trench and post holes from yesterday‘s first accent by Mitch Todd and Romen. But the last 3 miles are very slow and exhausting. Enough snow to make the visible trail tricky to follow. The last 1/2 mile I just grabbed rocks and went strait up. I think the lower trail to the summit, the one that stays off the ridge, may be the lesser of the evils. Very windy, but like any 14er early Feb, very wet and rewarding.
