Comments
Comments: Some icy stretches on the southern aspects, where microspikes were handy enough.
On the summit ridge and north, also coming down bellows pipe, snowshoes saved us from postholing in the spring snow where so many others had done so. One hardy soul skied down the Thunderbolt, which looked like Baghdad airport after the shock and awe campaign, craters to the left, craters to the right.
