|Lost and Found:
||We lost trail once we got to first major ledges and walked around for awhile trying to locate a marker. Just happened upon the yellow marker on a ledge but it was covered in snow. Then lost trail again just beyond the Mowglis trail.|
Beautiful day to be out! Crystal blue skies. The Manning Trail turns to the right just before the first major ledges, however, the only marker indicating this was covered in snow. Since we were breaking Trail we had no path to follow. Just by luck, we cleared off the rock and noticed the marker. Absolutely breathtaking views on the ledges. Just before Firescrew, the trail was steep and icy. Could have used crampons, but with the help of the trees, we managed with spikes. We lost the trail again once we turned onto Mowglis trail. After walking around a bit and looking ahead to more steep ledges, we called it a day.
