Comments
Comments: Room in the parking area for 6-7 cars, the approach road is plowed, or at least flattened by snowmobiles. You may need to step aside for these abominations but that's the price we pay. The trail all the way up was well packed but you'll posthole pretty well if you take a wrong step or have to step aside for other hikers. Pretty standard really. I bare booted it all the way to the top but Salty need crampons, Vasque 1, Keen 0. I'm sure micro spikes would have sufficed but I don't own any. Superb views from the top as usual, but too windy to stay long. Thermometer said 5F, assuming 30mph winds as per forecast, it felt like ~-20. I needed crampons on the way down, which were a free pair I picked up somewhere. They're made for ice climbing boots however and didn't attach to my boots very well. Amateur mistake on my part, and Salty had his booted revenge. Trango crampons 0, Stubai 1. Felt pretty beat by the end due to my own general lack of fitness and a growing cold which emerged full bore this morning. Overall it was a perfect day and I wish you the same!
