Comments
Comments: Would of liked to have an ice ax as a 3rd point of contact for the super steep 1/2 mi north from Wind Gap on the LT and for the summit to stabilize against the sustained 40-45mph NW wind which was trying to push me around. Burrows trail is a dream perfectly packed snow easy walking with microspikes, Forest City and LT both partially packed down with some unconsolidated powder. Beard completely covered in frost on summit, beautiful sunset.
