Comments
Comments: Determined that unabated sliding potential existed for Grete beyond Edmands Col and opted not to attempt Jefferson. Randolph Path consolidated to the Perch, drifted thereafter. Lowe's Path is well traveled to false summit. Snowfields held my weight except for a few shin bruising postholes from crust. Gorgeous above treeline, rich blue skies. Transitional day, winter cold from gusty wind around midday- rain forest type conditions coming down Lowe's as it warmed up quickly.
