Comments
Comments: brilliant blue sky day, a moderate number of people were going up as we came down. excellent powder snow had been tracked by barebooters; we followed in bb's, although the 6"-8" might want some to consider snowshoes (who knows after warm days this week?) most of the slabs above treeline were blown clear.
views went all the way to Big George, clear as can be. chilly enough to not hang out at summit, though.
always an excellent day with friends.
