Comments
Comments: A great day for a hike and trail conditions were a mixed bag, good overall and much better than expected. Bare booted up Imp trail, mostly dry until right before N Carter trail jct. Continued to bareboot to the ridge on stable snow but snowshoes would've been better. The snowshows went on to traverse the ridge on stable monorail. There were some short stretches of bare rock, some narrow monorail stretches and many deep postholes for those who stepped off it in the past. Bring a rain coat as the tree limbs will get the leader very wet. The snowshoes came off about half way down Carter Dome trail as conditions gradually returned to dry trail for the walk out.
