Comments: The conditions for a May 1st climb with this much snow still on the trail could not have been any better. Except for the monorail on Hi Cannon, all other monorails were completely solid. The monorail on Hi-Cannon is very challenging in spots. It`s steep and with a narrow or zero monorail, it can be tough. I`m glad things had firmed up or Hi Cannon would have been real trouble. What a change from the last few weeks. Every trail has it`s washouts but not bad at all. I was really surprised how solid the trail was on KRT from Fish & Jimmy junction to Hi Cannon Junction. Really didn`t see any boiler plate ice and very little ice as well. Lots of post holes where people had been out in warmer weather. I choose hillsounds and they worked awesome.

It was fun running into Pickles and her friend. Thanks for chatting!!
