Comments
Comments: This was not an easy hike- there was lots of ice on both 19 MB and Imp (Imp should be renamed Ice) - stayed in Hillsound microspikes the whole way and managed not to fall down- had to do a couple of butt glissades on Carter- Moriah- started at 8:45 and got back to my car by 4:00- traction absolutely mandatory for pretty much the whole hike- fortunately the ice was mostly soft enough that spikes dug in- good thing, because there were many places where there was no choice but to hike on the ice
