Comments
Comments: Way better day than Friday. Enough snow to cover most rocks, which had been packed by boots and frozen. Snow was a little loose, but mostly firm. Made for great descents. Ladder down the backside of West is exposed but still quite usable with care. Going up East was a bit tricky as it was quite icy, but with some care there was enough bare rock without ice and pockets of snow to pick my way up. Summit had some icy exposed rock, but was mostly snow. Tracks stopped at the summit. Hit Table Rock on the way back, and the iron rungs are also still exposed and able to be used. Cold but clear and sunny, with spectacular views.
