Granite-Tusk o Granite loop, Alpine Lakes Wilderness

A quick winter trip I'd never got around to. Conditions were perfect for the winter route, wearing spikes car-to-car. Early start helped with firm conditions on the climb up, snow was either wind blown or in wind drifts on the ridge over to Tusk with the Olallie Lake trail being totally packed down.

Yeah, don't go the summer route...
