Hiked/Snowshoed in Saturday and set-up camp. On Sunday attempted the peak and hiked out.
Saturday was a long day we started hiking at 7 a.m. and got back to the cars at 8 p.m. I finally got back home around 1:30 a.m. We did not get the peak. The final section leading to 500 feet of class 3 climbing would have required ice-axe and crampons and we only had our snowshoes and poles. On the hike out we had to cross some talus fields and I was boulder hopping with my 30 pound pack like I was a teenager. I credit the olympic lifting, squats, and deadlifts for giving my knees the resiliency that I have not had in recent years.
