Comments
Comments: We did this loop clockwise. Up to Imp Face, there was about 2 inches of new snow. We wore snowshoes and were staying on top of the trail. Others before us had postholed quite a bit. We were the first ones on top of the new snow. Beyond Imp Face, the trail appeared less traveled- a little deeper snow up there/not as packed down, but not bad. At the junction with North Carter trail, we evaluated whether or not to do the loop and decided the trail going down the south side looked the same as what we had come up so we kept going. At about 2200-2000 feet, the sun was shining and snow was very soft and sticky and deep. From here down, we were sinking down pretty regularly and pretty far. It got better closer to the bottom.
