Comments
Comments: Very deep snow drifts around Mt. Surprise. Trail obliterated from Mt. Surprise onwards due to deep drifting snow. Lost trail several times on the way to Moriah, broke trail solo. Some snowshoe tracks will lead to dead ends, use caution. Due to deep snow, time spent finding and breaking obliterated trails, had to turn back half mile shy of summit.
