Bugs: Yup. Holy crap, yup. Amazingly they weren’t biting. Just flying into every orifice they could find.  
Lost and Found

Comments: Air Line is dry and wonderful until about 3300’. Intermittent ice starts at that point. Nothing you can’t get around without careful steps. Once you break treeline, it’s smooth sailing to the summit.

On the way down, the .3 on Gulfside to the Hut is kinda sucky. A river in parts, a whole lot of snow in other parts.

Airline Cut-Off sucked. An elevated, unstable snowpack that sometimes held, but mostly didn’t.

Headed back down Air Line because we heard VW was an absolute shitshow. Hopefully the storms and temps clear up the winter conditions.
