Comments
Comments: Temp was mild, some rain on way up valley way that turned to snow by the time we got to Madison Hut. Last half mile up to summit was sketchy. The winds were intense (must have been gusts up to 90) that kept me from moving til they stopped. Wouldn’t recommend to the faint of heart aka inexperienced.
The whole trail was packed and easy to see and walk on with snowshoes needed the whole way.
