Comments
Comments: Out/Back from the Kanc. These are the best conditions you will get in Winter for the Osceolas. Nicely packed the whole way with no ice. Just a short blown in area on the ridge before East Osceola. Two of us used snowshoes from the start all the way to Osceola and back to East. At that point, I switched to crampons to come down the steep part while the other stayed with the snowshoes and some sliding. The third person barebooted from the road to the Mt Osceola Trail junction then used crampons up and down until she got back to the junction. For the steep climb up either snowshoes or crampons are good. Spikes are probably ok too but less efficient since the more traction you have the less you will slip back.
