Comments
Comments: The first 1.5M there was barely any snow so we bare booted until the monorail started, we then kept the micro spikes on for the rest of the hike, lose snow/slippery. Postholing is almost unavoidable and going to get worse with these warms temps coming in. It was especially worse going towards Mt. Avalon aka post hole city!! Great hike though! Stay on the monorail as best as possible!
