Comments: Amazing day in the Presis today!

Snow shows up on Ammo around 4200’ (right after the water crossing up high). Alternating monorail and fully supportive snow pack up to the Hut. Snow was soft enough to get some bite, so we kept spikes off. If you were descending Ammo, you’d probably want them on.

Completely bare and dry trail above treeline.

Patchy monorail on Edmands from 4400’ down to the corner where the waterfall (still frozen over) is. After that, smooth sailing down.
