Comments
Comments: A fine day, warmer than expected, almost no wind. Views were clear and distant, a 360 panorama day, unlimited sunshine.
The lower half of Osseo is stable crust, ok for any foot gear; however, as one ascends there is progressively more loose snow which is progressively chopped up by bb's, who made the upper switchbacks the worst I can recall with postholes mid-trail a foot deep, and thigh deep if off path. SNOWSHOES-we passed several almost all of whom did NOT have snowshoes, chopping trail so as to make it difficult for everyone. Out 5 had SS's and helped smooth over, but could only make less worse.
Nota bene:just as trail pops out of treeline the trail sidehills over a couloir and up an angled 25 yards until trail flattens toward summit. This is a no fall zone !! doable, not ok for everyone.
