Comments
Comments: Beautiful clear day, though a bit windy. I went up on Airline to Adams, then down on valley way. I used snowshoes below the treeline both ways, except the last stretch of Valley way which was well packed. Above the tree line there was a fair amount of ice. I wore crampons, ice axe just in case (chopped a couple of steps for fun...). Saw others with crampons, many more with spikes, a few with snow shoes, so it was doable in a number of ways but I'm happy I had my crampons :)
