Comments
Comments: Very wet, but I was able to keep my feet dry through careful walking. Very windy and cold at the top. Jackets, pants, and hats went on when we reached the col. I wish I had brought gloves. We planned to come down Horns Pond Trail but changed our mind due to the gusty winds. We had a hard time standing up on West Peak. Close to zero visibility. Still a small amount of snow/ice left off to the side of the trail above the col.
