Comments
Comments: Bare booted, then Hillsound spikes until the descent off East Osceola, when we switched to full crampons. They weren’t totally necessary, but we brought ‘em so we wore ‘em! Conditions were good on the steeps, and there was very little ice showing. Route was well traveled & temps were cold enough, so snowshoes were not needed, or carried, this particular day. Bare booted the final couple miles.
