Comments
Comments: Fresh 2-3” on top of shrunk but frozen monorail. Wore microspikes all the way to the cabin below the summit. Took a break in cabin for a beer and to switch to crampons and axe - both came in handy on steep top sections. Brought a short glacier rope, harness and figure 8 and ended up rappelling down from the top in 2 sections. Smooth sailing all the way back down. Long day but nice early spring hike w/ some fresh snow
