Trip Report

After snowshoeing Foran Grade, I set my sights on the slightly higher Windy Point Ridge. I followed a good trail down from the summit of Foran Grade but near the pass I had to forge my own path straight up to the summit ridge of Windy Point - and it was bloody steep. The bitter cold actually helped me at this point - the slabby snow held my weight about 60% of the time. The other 40% was spent cursing the sugary stuff underneath the slab... ;-)
