Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Combination of dry areas, mud and rocks at the bottom, snow and rocks at the top. Bare booted until the 3300' water crossing, and switched to rock spikes just after. Dropped the spikes at the same spot on the way down. Post holed once, on the way down while stepping off trail to let two people by. Went in up to my thigh, and my foot when ankle deep in water. It was windy at the summit, but not as bad as the weather reports had projected. Windbreaker over a sunshirt was sufficient.
