Comments
Comments: A little bit of everything today. Carried snowshoes but they never came off the pack. Definitely recommend spikes. Snow began at 2600 feet, and spikes went on at 3200. Monorail was hard packed and stable for the most part. Summits were bare rock but kept spikes on for both since the snow began shortly below the summits. Saw about 15 people all day.
