Comments: Parked at 19 lot easy road walk to CDodge. Put on spikes, and took off layers, no problem to CMT. No sign at jct just merged onto CMT heading south. A white blaze ankle high confirmed the trail. Ridge trail was hard to see. Two previous high wind days smoothed off the trail definition. Followed a single set of human and dog prints with many gps readings. Even then found my self off the packed trail and caught in waist deep snow surrounded by prickly, dense trees and scrub in between Middle C and South C. Late lunch on South then easy hike to Zeta. Looked up at the Dome and decided it would be another day since my feet were wet and I was bushed. Nice cruise down CDT to 19 and back to the car. Roughly 11 miles in 9.5 hours. This was a tough hike.
