Comments
Comments: Overnight trip up to Imp Shelter with a couple friends. Bare booted until last crossing on Stony Brook trail then snowshoes from there. C-M has seen very little traffic from the junction to Imp shelter. Snowshoes absolutely a must. I broke solo from the shelter to North Carter trail. I forgot how much of a bear North Carter was and I was swimming in snow at times. Drifts to waist deep on this stretch. My friends packed out behind me so the route is open. From North Carter trail it is a nice (albeit still soft) trough along the Carters. Snowshoes stayed on until the low junction with 19MB where things start getting bony and spikes are just fine.
