Comments: Trail is in great shape. Well packed almost the whole way. The exception being a bit soft in col btwn Twins. Micro spikes from start to finish. Snowshoes got a free ride. I might have put them on anyway just for heel lifts, but noticed I had a broken crampon at start, and decided not to use them unless needed for floatation. I never postholed. It was great to get one of the long ones done and 3 more Ws. Also great butt-sledding conditions down South Twin, and first stretch of G. River descent!!
