|Lost and Found:
||Three guys from Somerset, MA left their traction behind. Too late to chase them down, so we hung it on a parking lot sign.
Thanks Apple Pie and Phillip for hanging Judah's missing bootie from a parking lot sign! ||
||If you have Hillsounds or better traction you should be okay TO CLIMB UP the ice flows below Lafayette. Coming down Falling Waters would actually be a safer bet for descent. Wish we had. Wish we'd left our snowshoes home too.|
Coast Guard member Will said snow on the ridge from Liberty to Little Haystack was deep and the ridge trail invisible. Expect to get your face whacked by branches.
