Comments
Comments: Please bring your snowshoes! It was rough having to break trail following a group of 4 barebooters postholing badly although the trail is now well broken for a base. Drifted snow from tonight will likely result in needing a break a few additional inches of snow. There are a lot of exposed rocks in the first mile where it starts climbing up towards the ridge. Very windy on the short exposed portion of the ridge and didn't climb the summit tower. Suplementary reading on today will likely be added by Liam Cooney. There is at least a foot up high and potential 1.5 in areas of wind drifted snow. The first mile of Signal Ridge Tr has a few portions of open/running water and we broke out the old section of trail where the second relocation bypasses higher up the west bank and the old section that diverges left at the old jct w/Carrigain Notch Tr
