Comments
Comments: Wore snowshoes all the way up and back to East peak, then crampons all the way down. At 140lbs with pack I wasn't making more than an inch impression in the trail nor postholeing. Saw a couple other groups but pretty sure I was the last one down the mountain that day.
If anyone finds my axe I can compensate.
