Comments
Comments: Microspike’d all the trails just fine without punching through. Someone wearing 36” Lightning Ascents postholed the crap out of the Garfield Ridge trail between the hut and Garfield Ridge tentsite. This ended up being ok, as everything froze solid and you can walk in their steps for most of the way. I wore snowshoes on the bushwhack off N Twin, and crampons on the descent from PAtN. Used all 3 forms of traction on one hike!
