Was hoping to get up a little higher but started too late and was very snow / ice packed trail - particularly the 3 1/2 miles below Barr Camp. Some places on the trail will likely not see the Sun again for months.
Still good to get over 3600' elevation climb and a total of 13 miles. Slow going, 3 hr 15 minute round trip.
Wind damage (from last weekend) had left it's mark as several trees were down, some across the trail. Downhill journey left it's marks as I wiped out hard, twice. (No photos of the war wounds this time). If and when I do this next time I will be sure to take Yak Tracks or something to help w/ traction. The last 3 miles I had my new headlamp on and finished in total darkness.
Despite some new ouchies, was still a good time.
Some photos of the trip......
