Comments
Comments: left wildcat ski area and ascended up ski trails, mostly using polecat trail. A bit of snow left on the ski trails but mostly grass. used microspikes on descent from wildcat into carter dome as there was lots of ice on the trail. used spikes on and off the rest of the day. Lots of blowdowns on carter moriah. a couple were a pain to get by. high winds really picked up as the afternoon grew late. blue skies however were plentiful. Great day to do a nice traverse!
