Comments
Comments: Snow patches and frozen bodies of water from the beginning. Steady ice with a snow cover from the moment we surmounted the ridge line at around 2000. We were glad of the microspikes.
Even with spikes, on the way down on one flow we lost traction one after the other and slid down a dozen feet before stopping at a cairn. Temps on top were in the teens with winds in the 20s.
