Comments
Comments: Light dusting of snow to start the morning, so we barebooted, then spiked all the way to junction of hut (with some balling on the spikes) Fresh snow depth increased to 4”-5” as we climbed South Twin and we put snowshoes on about halfway up. Felt like winter up there, cloudy, wind blowing! Had some fun route finding as we made our way (mostly on trail) to North Twin. Took in those cloudy views, then reversed direction and went back towards the hut. Climbing Galehead on our way out. Saw evidence of other people on Galehead but didn’t see another person all day. Not the best weather day but it didn’t rain! (Though we were soaked from pushing through all the wet trees) We wore snowshoes all the way back to the road with suprisingly little balling of snow.
