Comments
Comments: A great packed trail today but the post holes will still jump up and bite you. Spikes were great up to the north summit and then snowshoes over to south. Butt sledding down from south to pack the trail and then crampons out.

The snow was getting soft in the sun around noon so come prepared with spikes and snowshoes. And watch out for the ever increasing post holes!
