Comments
Comments: easy ascent up Dodge cutoff and Imp Trail..some ice in spots that was easily avoidable..trail is brushy in spots..carter moriah has some historic mud pits but mostly good with a decent corridor..major blowdown in Zeta pass area heading to Carter Dome will be an issue as snow depths increase. The mud pits on Hight loop are amazing and basically unavoidable..hopefully they freeze soon...great views today
