Comments
Comments: Monorail on Valley Way is very stable - starting to soften up in the early afternoon. Microspikes all the way. We carried snowshoes but no reason to use them. At higher elevation the monorail seems too narrow for snowshoes.

Above treeline snow coverage is very intermittent - it is mostly bare rocks now. We barebooted most of it.

Spectacular day for Georg, Cinnilla and myself.
