Comments
Comments: Fun day climbing the steeps and butt sliding back down. The trail is very well consolidated the whole way but for some drifts along the ridge. The chimney bypass is solid, and a bypass bypass has been broken through the woods. The trees provided a good wind break, although it was breezy as we listened to the winds moaning above us. There were a couple of steep pitches which would have been easier (up or down) with crampons, we managed to climb them with snowshoes.
