Mount Ellinor/Route 1

Hike scheduled for 12/7/14 originally for Mt. Rose. Changed destination to Mt. Ellinor on the way to Rose because the weather turned out so nice - no precip, partly sunny, not very cold, no wind, excellent views from top, hardly any other people. From lower Ellinor trailhead, took the summer route. Small patches of icy snow above boulder field, gradually increasing on switchbacks to summit. A few inches of hard snow going up to summit, old steps helped. Needed microspikes coming down until just past the traverse below the saddle. Great day!
