Comments: A soup to nuts hike of these peaks! After reaching Mt Abraham in low visibility pea soup, was treated to a brief clearing of the skies revealing a beautiful undercast and views of Mt Ellen.Barebooted this traverse over a postholed, but solid surface until reaching the Jerusalem Trail. There was quite a bit of ice on the initial descent. Micros on until nearly the end. Snowshoes while on the pack today were absolutely not needed.
