Comments: Not much to add to previous report. Thanks to all for the accurate trail condition intel.... so nice to leave 4 pounds of snowshoes behind for this traverse [risky!]. This report is probably null and void with incoming weather. We barebooted to the hut then micros from there. Good trail conditions overall with some bumpiness from Zealand to Guyot and a few other places. 0 degree start but warmed up for a gorgeous blue sky, no wind day and phenomenal views. Two folks grabbed their over 70 peaks, two gridders grabbed their Jan Zea-Bonds and congratulations to Kwi Hui who finished her grid on Bondcliff... WooHoo for her 576th!!!
