Dickerman Mountain (winter)

  • Dickerman Mountain (winter)
  • Scrambling

A light sprinkle starting about an hour into the ascent changed to light snowfall as we emerged from the trees. Microspikes or crampons were used to great advantage on the dense snow. On top the snow was moderately blowing - gee, it actually felt like winter up there! On our return the snow nearly obscured our ascent tracks. Still no need for snowshoes :(

Our small and skilled party took a bit under 5 hours RT. The roads were quiet, with just one other person on the trail (something about the weather and some sporting event).
