Comments: Broke out Road/ridge today. Extremely tough conditions with wet balling snow and every step was a battle but we ultimately did summit.

I am not sure what happened on the road when we broke it in the AM, there are now two troughs, of which someone barebooted in each and made them difficult for the first 1.75 miles of the road walk. There where people camping in the summer lot when we got down at 1830. Signal Ridge is packed to the junction with Carrigain Notch, to about the second switchback, then it is broke out but not packed well. Only three of us made it from the rock rest spot to the summit.

Great day with J&J. Truly pushed my physical limits !
