Comments
Comments: Trail is well broken-out and packed all the way to the summit, save a number of drifts up on the ridge. The LT corridor is well maintained and was only tricky to follow for quick moments here and there, a few times.

Coldest weather I've ever hiked in, -11 at the trailhead, -20 at the summit. Tried separately for Abraham in the afternoon, but turned around a mile up due to persistent chest pain, likely due to breathing in the frigid air so long (gonna have it checked just in case).
