Comments
Comments: Tomorrow's condtions will change throughout the day with the incomming weather. This morning HNT and much of CBT only had some small sections of black ice and a light dusting of snow, any mud was frozen. Less ice on the ascend up north side of the loop than on the descent off South Peak, where there was more substantial blue ice.
