Comments
Comments: It snowed all day. This gave us something beautiful to look at seeing as the clouds were low and that prohibited views. Trails were in decent shape all in all. Showshoes across the sleepers kept them on until Rollins. Traction otherwise. I used Hillsounds, some went in to a similar tooth crampon. There are some tricky sections on Rollins where butts were used to ease the leg work. Great day out with a great group.
