Trip Report

We tried Mount Lawrence Grassi on November 11 but we were turned around by high wind and very cold temperatures at the top. This time Sean, Taylor and I managed to get to the summit. There are no major difficulties on this moderate scramble - there is a good trail up the spine and to the summit. 

 

Some exposure at the summit block might make beginner scramblers a bit nervous.

 


[Snow made things a lot spicier than normal for us - looking back down the spine on the ascent.]
