Comments
Comments: Bringing beat up microspikes is the way to go. Falling Waters is mostly all still snow/ice/monorail covered, even down relatively low. Very firm this morning. Would definitely want spikes descending, and used them ascending. Lots of snow left. Bareground above treeline, then monorail for 2/3 of old bridal path with sunny spots melted out totally.

Absolutely perfect above treeline day. Sunny and winds between 0 and 1 mph. Lots of smiling faces, most had some clue. Only saw a few people with snowshoes on their back out of the 100 plus people I saw. Saw a bunch of people in just sneakers, I pity their wet feet. Prize winner was a guy in khaki's, sweater vest, no pack or water, just a gps on his belt halfway up falling waters asking if I thought there would be more snow higher up. At least he'll know the exact position where he get's screwed.
