|| nineteen mile relatively dry until carter dome junction then wet until just before final climb to notch when frozen snow and ice appear. some snow and ice around lakes. carter-moriah mostly snow free until spur to pulpit rock outlook then hard snow and ice to summit continuing most of the way to hight though summit area is clear. ice and snow on descent to zeta pass. trail clear to south peak and most of the way to middle with just patchy snow and ice. carter dome had some ice/snow up high then clear with some wet and muddy sections. a couple of stepover and hanging blowdowns between south and middle peak and one hanger near zeta pass that will be a pain once there is a snow base. |
light traction really helpful on ascent of dome and on to zeta pass. would not recomend going up without it right now.
a much nicer day weather wise than i expected. clouds lifted a bit providing some nice views to the presidentials which were in and out of clouds. good temps and no winds. a quiet day in the carter range today.
