|Lost and Found:
||The access road is a frozen mess, which should be expected. Powerlines have a stable trail going about half-way up. I decided to continue up the powerlines, rather then turning around. The crust on the snow was sturdy enough that I managed to stay on top using nothing but spikes all the way to summit. It was iffy in spots, but doable. |
I took Winslow down, and there is a sturdy established trail top to bottom. Very uneven from lots of booters when weather was warm.
Barlow trail looks untouched; not broken out.
