Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Saw a microspike on the way to willey that was not there on the way back 
Comments: Basically every spring condition. Monorail started and rock spikes went on around 2500. Fairly stable up Avalon with some ice too but not hard. Step off the path of righteousness and posthole to knee or crotch, depending. Ridge was a mixed bag with some very narrow monorail on the the way to willey (about 3 inches in some spots) but inside was sometimes stable and sometimes not. Coming down a-z was a slippery slushy mess. I don't mind and kind of like a stable monorail but will be happy when the snow melts and the deep slush/unstable monorail goes away. At least this day snowshoes would have been useless and dangerous in places [dangerous?].
