Comments
Comments: Easy hike up to the hut. Lots of ice, but not bad with microspikes. Last 0.2 to summit was a sheet of ice covered by 3-4" of loose powder. Had to use trees and go up mostly on hands and knees. Crampons would've been a better choice. Slid/hiked down on butt and feet. Be careful out there folks!!!
