|Lost and Found:
||Up Falling Waters with Microspikes, a few icy parts where steep. Crampons would be good there - Shaded, minimal melting in morning. |
Ridge- Little Haystack to Lincoln mainly snow free. Lincoln to Lafayette snow - microspikes adequate.
Down to Greenleaf Hut,take it slow is some spots. From hut down to about 2500 ft,steep, some ice (here and there) and a couple of tree at chest level. I used crampons for this - much better traction.
Saw one younger person - only boots! Tuesday onward, take microspikes, snow shoes, and crampons, you may need to switch traction as you go.
2500 feet and lower, top 4-6 inches of snow - slick, mashed potato like.
