Comments
Comments: Quiet day. Only saw three other hikers in front of us. Snowed most of the day. Barefooted the first three miles and then put on spikes. If you step to the side of the trail you may posthole. We used crampons coming down the short steep section below the summit. Nice to take a break on the Galehead hut porch. No views today.
