Comments
Comments: 20's as we started early kept the trails solid, moderately irregular packed granular surface with many areas of melted/refrozen ice which made microspikes the right tool for an easy trip; more ice on Winslow on the way up. most of the summit granite clear of snow and ice. 360 clear views to Whites including distant Presies. snow in thew woods kept the winter ambiance. forgot Kestrel reading (!!), but 30ish, wind<5--easy to hang out at summit. pleased to have the K/F team join us for a start to the day.
