Comments
Comments: Micro spike or Crampons were the choice of traction. Way too rocky for snowshoes. On the steep sections there is ICE. There were ways around currently but that will get progressively harder. Bushwhack to Scaur Peak was open (except for "summit cone"). Follow the moose and bear tracks.
