Comments
Comments: Started out in spikes. Put snowshoes on just before the switch backs and stayed on the rest of the day. There was a steep drop off going to Middle with a big drift over it. We just were not sure if that was were the trail went. Didn`t want to climb back up it if we were wrong. There was a woman that also attempted it after us. She also didn`t want to go thru that drift going down, she caught up to us after our lunch. Going down, ran into a man that was going to Middle and said he will break it out. Also ran into Pie and Richard. They to were going to Middle. So hopefully for the next folks, it will be better for you!
