Water Crossing Notes

Watch your step. Also, with warmer daytime temperatures streams were flowing more freely on the descent.

Comments
Comments: We used spikes to Zeta Pass and opted for snowshoes for the rest of the way up. While we could have made it in spikes we wanted to smooth out the path, since the stretch from Zeta Pass to the summit was in pretty bad shape. Marty and I (mostly Marty) worked to try and fill in some of the postholes.
