Comments: Bare booted up Gale River minimal ice used micros a couple of times up & down on Twinway. Could have done without but solo felt better using them. No issues on Frost Tr. Garfield Ridge 1 duck under blow down. Couple of ice spots no traction. Water running down rocks before campsite. Like hiking up a waterfall. Used micros last 1/10 ml up/down summit. Saw people with none but struggling. Great views on South Twin & Garfield! Garfield Tr minor mud/water no issues. Another great day in the woods. #'s 28-29 & 30

Shout out to Jessie finished his 48th on Galehead! Congrats!
