Comments
Comments: Snowshoes the whole time. Snow was soft but no real issues with the snowshoes on. However, a group of four young men were barebooting it out as I was heading down. They left numerous, deep postholes so the trail is not going to be pleasant, especially without snowshoes. Once the temps drop, hiking crampons (vs microspikes) will likely be needed for the final section.
