Comments
Comments: We were second group up mountain on the new snow. We could have used snowshoes but opted for crampons as we had read top was all ice and did not want to switch by Fire Warden cabin.

Summit was not cold, but very, very windy. One of the group ahead of us turned around as it was too cold/windy for her.
