Comments
Comments: Avalon was packed out until the AZ junction. The track continued up AZ for a mile or so before they stopped. 3 of us broke out Avalon to Field, then Field to Tom. We made the unanimous decision on Field to skip Willley, it was just too cold and windy for all of us. Snowshoes were the right choice though we still hit some rocks here and there. Oh, and we all really enjoyed the new reroute on AZ, well done!!
