Comments
Comments: Avalon at start was bare-boot, the monorail became more significant pretty quickly and we put spikes on, 6am start so things were still relatively solid but things were still messy. We carried snowshoes but didn't wear them-the monorail was too narrow with too many postholes surrounding it. Tom Spur was fine. Rotting snow/monorail on the way to Field-and to Willey-again, because it was early it was pretty solid as long as you stayed on the monorail but once off you sink-still 3-4ft. The ladders heading down Ethan Pond were good-no snow/ice on most of them (for the moment-I know snow is coming tonight and then rain). Ethan Pond was pretty clear of snow after the first junction on the descent and it was a great walk out (10am).
