Comments
Comments: Great day to be out. No snow or ice issue to tent site then minor to FRT. Lots of snow still on FRT in spots, especially heading up steeps to Liberty where we put on traction because everything was frozen solid. Barebooted to steep section of Flume where we put on traction again. Used traction all the way back to Liberty ledges. Found it much quicker and safer.
