Comments
Comments: Softened snow from the mild temperatures began at about 2500' and increased with elevation to several inches. Its unconsolidated nature made progress on the steeper parts of upper Stony Brook and Moriah's south ledges very tedious. We got to the summit without traction but found rock spikes very helpful for descending the partially snow-covered ledges, taking them off a short way down Stony Brook Trail. Lots of standing water and mud on all trails as well.
Much better weather day than we were expecting with lovely views up high. We saw no other hikers. Fun hike with Chris and Renee. C/2 47/49.
