Second futile attempt at going up Mt Wire.  Started out this afternoon and could see the top, by the time I found trailhead and got to top of ridgeline I was hit by a sudden gale force wind and snowstorm whiteout up there.  Sliding all over and I could no longer see the trail.  Decided I didnt want to be the next frozen wandering lost soul in the wasatch range so I turned back and went up east to some overlook that looks back across the valley, overall fun deer filled day. avg SLOW.  Third times the charm.

Somehow the 3rd time has got to work for you. I think you need to rally in the troops with you...ahem Jun and Scott.

Hey man, let me know when you want to go up there. I might be going Thurs or Fri morning. The wind can be quite fierce on that ridge.

We did Wire today. The conditions weren't great, but doable.
