|Lost and Found:
||I recommend snowshoes, only for off trail, and even then, you could get by without. That said, they helped me with the bushwhack to East Ethan Allen. Burrow's trail and Forest City were tracked out, with some blue ice. No tracks to Ethan Allen and lots of hidden ice. Micro spikes were best on trail.|
We bushwhacked Bald hill from the Burrows Trail, just after it starts to turn east towards camels hump. We worked up to the col and then followed the ridge to the peak. The woods were open and the highpoint is recognized. We followed our tracks back.
Camels hump was very windy and drifts made it a bit hard to follow the LT south.
Just before the final steep climb to Ethan Allen, we began to slab to reach the col between the peaks. We had mainly open woods with some swampy areas. The slabbing was a little tough. Once we reached the col., we had open woods to the recognized highpoint. We followed our tracks back and hiked to the main peak.
