Comments: The Major and I had a nice hike today. Trail and weather conditions were great, except the snow was sticking to the snowshoes a bit from Zeta Pass to North Carter trail junction, wherever the sun was shining on the trail; and the air temperature was too warm for my liking. Snow cover seemed thin for the end of Feb, and surprisingly the post-holing was minimal. We wore spikes or HHP crampons from the car to the last stream crossing up CD trail(~2600' elev), then switched to snowshoes, which we wore until about 15 minutes from the Dodge Cut-Off--at which point we went back to spikes or HHP crampons. Met Jason going the other way doing MC through Cat D, and fell in with Tom at Carter Dome (who had came up on C-M trail, for which he said crampons were necessary) for the rest of the hike.
