Lost and Found
Lost and Found: 1 Treking Pole @19 MB put in snow bank 
Comments: Polecat was soft early, higher it became really firm. Ski patrol told us turn around time was 8:15. Several skinning up early. Ridge was well broken but not consolidated to just before B. Looked like only 1set of tracks to A. Down to the Notch was not broken out. We lost the trail a few times, but we made it. Up to Cater Dome was broken but a soul crushing unconsolidated, exhausting trek. Deep snow made for amazing views! Well traveled to Zeta. South was broken out but we came across a group of 7 heading to Zeta & the trail is now well packed all the to Camp Dodge. Long day but we were treated to great weather.

Congrats to Erik who finished his winter 48, & Rhonda who gridded out these 5 peaks!
