Comments
Comments: Valley way was snow covered. Spikes were helpful. Hut was bathed in sunlight and felt great. We were able to take our spikes off just above the hut to do Madison and needed them to go over Adams and into the snow fields between Lightning junction and Israel Ridge. There were several folks on Adams enjoying the super day.
We stayed a bit high to stay out of the trees and any holes and they we did not need spikes over to Edmands Col. We put them back on to go up and over to the Jeff spur. The snowfields there are looking great with no skiers making it that far in. Someone had been across in the last couple of days and there were decent treads kicked out with some new snow on them. It was good climbing up to Jefferson and then we were able to bare boot to George. We put spikes back on to descend the snowfields and once again were able to take them off when we hit the trail. We were able to bare boot Monroe and then used the spikes again to catch the great snowfields on Monroe's side. We met Jason Beaupre and Jeff just below the hut and we all slide down ammo which has hard packed snow but not much ice yet.
