Comments
Comments: Exceptionally clear today. Polecat firm frozen mud which made for easy ascent and descent..Wilcat Ridge with less ice than previously noted..could be barebooted though i had my spikes on for descent in one of the rocky chutes by B which was blue ice. Others descended to Notch and reported blue ice on initial descent, avoidable with care. Views coming down the ski trail were amazing
