Comments
Comments: Southern Presi traverse, saw no one after leaving Pinkham's Notch. Microspikes up till the Lion Head Summer Route. Crampons from there till the summit of Washington. Hard steep ice on Lion Head, micros won't do. A couple melting icy snow slopes after the junction with Alpine Garden Trail. Should have had my Ice Axe out for that, would have been a long slide down if the crust didn't hold. Rock/ice mix to summit and down Crawford. More snow slopes to Lake of Cloud Hut, wouldn't do in just Micros. Switched to micros after Monroe - trail was mostly free of big blocks of ice. Everything is melting fast, lots of running water. Micros all the way to Jackson, where I switched back into Crampons for the steep ice back down to Crawford notch. Unbelievable day. Will update video soon in playlist link below:
