Attempt made December 8 via Rocky Branch and Isolation trails, came within a mile of the summit and bailed due to:

1. Lost trail in blowdown less than 1/4 mile from Davis Trail junction.
2. Wading in waist deep snow without snowshoes.
3. Late hour (2pm) and fatigue.

A boot pack is hammered out until we just lost the trail. Jeremy left, I stuck around for another 30 minutes and could not find anything rembling a trail. Good luck, I'll be skiing in from the Dry River side in late January when the snowpack is higher.
