Comments
Comments: Ice on Twinway generally very thin (verglas)on flatter places, including bedrock, where water did not drain and dry during the week, so not suitable for spikes; took a couple of spills in places where I could not see the clear verglas. Good to get this one for my pm solo grid, after missing it on Twins-Bonds traverse last weekend. Nice walk out from Zool hut in the dark where I encountered four other head-lamped hikers on their way in; appeared to be a full house at Zool on Saturday night.
