Comments
Comments: Hike up D was solid until the last half mile when snow/ice conditions started. Significantly more snow between D and A. Monorail was firm in the morning after the cool evening. Turned slushy and post-holed considerably more on return; to my chest (I'm 6'2") on 2 occasions. I had microspikes but wish I had brought poles to help stay upright in the corn snow.
