|Lost and Found:
||Today’s fabulous higher summits forecast made pretty much everything possible. I haven’t been up to Carrigain in a while so it was a good choice. Microspikes needed starting at 3200’, noting that there are really sketchy appearing short stretches of ice, starting at 2600’, that looked worse than they were both up and on the return. Once above 3500’ there was enough snow mixed with the ice that the footing was super fast. |
I only saw 3 people (2 near the summit and 1 leaving his car to start hiking when I was getting back in my car at the end), and one really persistent grey jay (sorry, grey jay, I don’t give out snacks!!).
With the weather moving in tonight this information will likely be of little use, but one can always hope. Happy hiking!!
