Comments: What a great day for a presi traverse! Crawford path up to Pierce was the worst part of the day, the trail was really soupy and slightly icy right before the summit. Microspikes might have helped for this but I was too lazy to put them on for the short section of trail where they would have been useful. Between pierce and washington, the trail was very clear with the exception of the backside of eisenhower and the ascent to monroe, both of which had a couple inches of snow. The snow was pretty steady between Washington and edmunds col, with intermittent postholing up to my knees. Descent from Madison was long with wet trails but nothing too bad.

The winds on the ridge were crazy! And hit peak#100 on eisenhower.
