Comments
Comments: The first half mile ascends steeply. The snow covered the rocks but wasn't deep enough to create a snowshoe hardpack. Snow was ankle deep with knee deep patches and drifts. Anywhere from 4" to 12" above 2500 Ft. Difficult conditions today but the trail is broken out to the Old Blue Summit. Great views.
