Comments: I hiked up bareboot until 2,500 feet and then spikes all the way up and down. Used snowshoes on the last 900 yards back to the car as it was easy to posthole; the sunny day had soften the snow crust considerable. The chimney was bare rock. A beautiful day and great views from the summit where I had a long lunch. I saw and heard a Coast Guard helicopter buzzing above and later hikers coming down told me that the guards were practicing putting people on the mountain, and picking them up. I missed the show.
