Comments
Comments: Mostly stable monorail below Pierce but it was starting to soften later in the day. There are a few spots deep in the woods where there’s enough snow that the monorail hasn’t formed yet. Unstable or non-existence monorail between Pierce and Eisenhower. HIGHLY recommend spikes over snowshoes. There are spots where there was an unstable, elevated monorail the width of my shoe (one, singular shoe). Anything in the direct sun had turned to mashed potatoes by the afternoon. The summit cone of Eisenhower is almost entirely bare rock. If you want to see pictures, you can see them on Instagram @quantum.moxie.
