Looks to have been there for atleast a few weeks, possibly for the winter. It's pretty nasty. When the waters recede a bit, it will be very easy for a doggo to get it.

Comments
Comments: Took advantage of last nights freeze and was able to rock up to the Dome in fine order. Between the first junction of 19M/CDT is a mix of bare, mud, mono, running water. From that first junction to the hut it firms up more or less to a monorail (wide). From the hut up to Carter it was still a pretty stable mono on the way up, not so much on the way down. As soon as the sun came out, it did a number on the snow. Bareboot to Wildcat A junction on the way in, spikes from there. Took spikes off at the lower CDT junction and bare booted from there. Snowshoes took a ride, would have not really helped.
