Comments
Comments: Microspikes could have been used the whole day as most trails have a hard cement foundation with 1-2 inches of scattered/compacted powder. Switched from microspikes to MSR ascents at the Carter Dome Trail junction off of Nineteen Mile Brook(I love the heel risers!). Trail stayed in generally the same condition all the way to Middle Carter, but switched to micospikes on the Mt. Hight bypass because the sidehill was hurting my ankles, especially on the riser bars. Kept microspikes on all the way down Carter Dome and up Wildcat....although in both cases there were sections that could have better used crampons. Trails are as hard packed as I've seen this year.
