Comments
Comments: Curious what conditions I would encounter after a lack of reports and recent snow. Parking lot was busy enough. No major complaints on the day, lots of people in just spikes which seems like a lot more work than it's worth. Snowshoes almost all day for me, but on the ridge it made no sense with rock/dirt exposed. Switched back to snowshoes on the way down falling waters and fell a number of times with the snow warmed up and mashed potatoes. Overall the monorail is in pretty good shape, but could always use a little work. No sense in worrying too much with the heavy traffic. Traction is a must on the summit approach to Lafayette.
