Comments
Comments: Blustery but beautiful morning to finish out my November Grid with this peak. With heavy winds and light snow showers Glen Boulder was not an option. I took EH Bushwhack and meandered through unfortunately going a little high. Micros went on about 1000ft before Isolation Spur and they were absolutely neccessary with heavy ice flow. Winds at summit were extremely heavy and full winter gear was on.
