Comments
Comments: Spikes on Valley Way @ ~3,700' to just below the hut then back on @ ~4,200' to 3,700' on the Air Line.

Intended to do a traverse. In thick, wet clouds @ ~5,200' going up Adams. Conditions deteriorated going down Adams on the way to Jeff. Vis down to ~40 yards and decreasing with winds gusting to 45 and increasing. Still a good day out with Mike Lynch.
