|Lost and Found:
||Bareboots until 1.6 miles in. Wet trail with plenty of running water, too. After the spikes go on it’s a very firm, icy track to the summit. Off the trail snow depth was around 6 inches. The rain picked up as we descended and there had been visible melting just in two hours. With the continued rain, I’m sure there will be even more melting before everything refreezes tonight. |
Haystack Road had just a few patches of ice in the morning and was completely melted by noon.
