Comments
Comments: We started up Cabot, breaking some fairly deep drifts. It was clear that folks had been up on Saturday, but the track was mainly, fully drifted in. About 1/2mi. from the summit, a solo hiker, Mark, caught up with us. We were thrilled with his decision to pursue additional peaks with us as he only set out for Cabot. His route finding contributions were invaluable. Trail breaking was fairly tough and route finding was tricky beyond Cabot summit. We resorted to bushwhacking a few times. Coming off Cabot and heading to the pond from the Horn spur stand out as the toughest route finding sections. Unknown Pond peak was considered as an optimistic side trip from the start. Due to tough conditions, we had pretty much ruled it out. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find the tracks of rocket21's group. These were invaluable in terms of making the side trip as well as the trip out from the pond a breeze. Thanks rocket21. Thanks Mark and Stefan for a great trip.
