Comments
Comments: Nineteen mile Brook was in great condition. Carter dome trail had numerous blow downs below the switchbacks and switchbacks in good shape. No significant snow until the carter-moriah trail on the ridge. That intersection was a mess of blow downs and tracks all in the snow. Be careful not to lose your way there.

Snow patches, decaying monorail along the ridge. Microspikes were helpful to stay on the monorail and not have to step off to the side. If you step off you can post hole up to your hip. Snow down from middle carter to the imp trail along north Carter trail had consistent and deep snow. It was a bit miserable there between the snow, running water and blowdowns. When you poked through water was running underneath the snow, get ready for wet feet or just wait until until is melted. it was slow going for the first half mile down from the carter-moriah trail. Imp trail south was clear and good conditions.
