Comments
Comments: Beautiful, blue-sky day,with snow/ice coated trees and bushes. Starting temp was 4F, was 0F at the top of Sabbaday, and definitely felt even colder on Middle. The wind on the peaks was mild, thankfully not the 25mph NOAA had predicted at 3500'. The steeps of Sabbaday Brook, with the ice covered (but no so thick as to be completely stable and trustworthy)ledges and big boulders, were somewhat of an adventure. Microspikes were definitely not adequate on the steeps of both Sabbaday and Pine Bend; two of used Hillshound Pros and the other full length crampons on the steeps. Either Microspikes or Hillshound Pros worked well in the less steep sections, and the snow/ice was thick enough that the spikes didn't seem to be grinding don on rock much.
