Comments
Comments: change of plans driving north as it seemed too good a day for the Cats. Crawford Path had a couple of inches of powder on very solid base. Above Mitzpah cutoff more apparent monorail which was narrow but solid today. Areas of severe postholing where some had ventured off on their own way. I little icier towards Pierce and we put on spikes there. Cairn just starting to poke out of the snow on pierce. Headed to Eisenhower trail a mix of some fresh drifts, long stretches of soft blue ice , solid monorail and bare rock. Spikes were the footware of choice today in the cold temps. Lots of snow in places and when things warm up again snowshoes would be advised. Stellar views all along the ridge and we stopped often for pics. A little breezy on Eisenhower but strong sun felt nice. Some icy spots on south face of cone a little tricky. Things stayed solid on descent softening only below Gibbs Falls where snow depths are very low. Thanks Sue for a great day out
