Comments
Comments: Definitely spring conditions. Started with a pretty dry trail, then ran into some mud/running water on trail, which turned into patchy snow then a monorail around 2800ft? It was solid on my ascent (I put spikes on for added traction) and turning a bit slushy on my descent. There were places on the climb up to Scaur that were dry and once on the ridge a section that was clear of snow. The snow/monorail quickly returned on the climb up to North-still solid as long as you stay on the monorail, which was very narrow. The walk over to Middle was fine-just looked like spring, messy with postholes in areas. Ran into a few other gridders (James-working on G1, Bill C-working on G2)-I gridded out the Tripyramids today getting me to 79.2%. Cloudy day but good temps and a descent trail conditions for spring.
