Comments
Comments: Snow builds as you climb. By the time you get on the ridge there are a couple of inches. There had been people up perhaps over the weekend and there was some consolidation. Further up perhaps 1-2 inches more and a funny crust. Could use snowshoes but overkill at this point. If you get another 6" definitely. Snowed or misted most of the time. No one at the hut which is always nice but spooky. Headed back to the car did not see a soul.
