Comments
Comments: Seeing that a group of 3 went up a few days ago prompted 4 of us to give it a try. We used our snowshoes the entire way because of the loose semi-packed powder. We mainly followed the tracks up which led to some confusion. The beginning part is somewhat confusing as there are some other sets of tracks departing from the trail. The tracks we followed went past the trail, something we did not catch due to poor blazing, and we followed the tracks that later bushwacked over to the trail again. On our return, we followed the trail all the way back. There were some places where we had to make our way through snow drifts, but overall, it was easy to follow the tracks. Upon reaching the ridge line, there was ice on scrambling areas making it tricky to get up/down. The ridge was a combo of bare rocks, snow, and iced over rocks. The summit of Goose Eye was mostly bare rock.
