Comments
Comments: Started at 8a from the lot, summit at 1230/1240, back at car by 330p. Snowshoes for the entirety. Trail was packed until about a mile from the summit. Then it was deep drifts especially the final stretch to the summit. Beautiful at the top, sunny, warm, windless, under cast with Lafayette poking in and out of the clouds. Saw 7 other people, unfortunately the last people we saw were barebooters tearing up the packed trail.
