Comments
Comments: Brisk start on a bluebird day to hike the ridge. Special time to be able to hike with Little Foot, her grandparents and another friend. Most of us wore snowshoes until getting above tree line after the hut. Trail had some ice under the new snow but team Tubbs had no problems with it. Above tree line , sharp traction, either hillsounds or full crampons were both decent choices. There were some sections of bare rock in between snow drifts along the ridge. Winds got pretty lively up there, probably blowing in the upper 20s with some bigger gusts , so still some drifting going on. Gratefull to have had amazing company to get a couple more peaks in for my February grid. Terrific bum sliding down falling waters today too :)
