Comments
Comments: Great day! Calm and clear. Spikes for first section until we felt televators would help the process. On went snowshoes until summit. They are definitely needed along the bushwhack route. We didn’t think so and went back to spikes for the descent. Could have used the snowshoes as we were sinking, not to the point of postholing but just worked harder than we needed to. Once we got back to the trail, it was much firmer and spikes were all we needed.
