Comments
Comments: I was pleasantly surprised no postholing (after reading weekenders horror reports about other locations). It was in 20s Monday night which helped firm up. First 1.7 mi up Blueberry was mostly bare dirt. Could have done without micros there if it was above freezing. Preposterous rock climbing ledge where steps used to be going up Whiteface. Solid monorail above that. Brought snowshoes but didn’t use. Took off micros to bareboot last 2.5mi down Diceys. Log over stream crossing on Dicey was great and still lots of clearance should water rise. Last mile down Dicey is getting wet in places but not currently muddy.
