Comments
Comments: Surprisingly fast conditions for spring. Snow starts shortly after the 2nd water crossing, and was firm enough that we were able to bareboot/microspike the entire trip. Willey Range trail up to Willey doesn't follow the correct route in places, but still gets you to the peak. Stellar day to be out!
