Comments
Comments: A beautiful day with a few hours of snow early. Well packed trail with almost no postholing for most of the route, but some deeper drifts at the top between the peaks. The steep sections up East Osceolo were a challenge up and dicey down. Saw one other solo hiker a few times, and we both started in microspikes and switched to snowshoes. I've never used crampons, but a few of those sections had me thinking it's time to start.
