Muir - Jan 12
« on: 01/14/13, 02:59 PM »

Well, I was planning on an easier day touring the Tatoosh but was talked into the Muir march, aided by plenty of sunshine.  It was cold (high of 13 deg F at Muir) but sunny and little wind.  I was sluggy so stopped around 9100 ft or so.  Laura and Mason chugged onward to tag the hut.   Not too busy, maybe 10 folks or so up high, a handful of others were lower. 

Snow was great.  A little dense and wind affected above 8k - others said a bit of crust the last 500 ft.  Below 8k was light with a solid base.  Pan face was perfect.  Hoar in the shadow of trees low.  Sounds like temps will be rising just a tad this week so things may morph. 

Skied out Edith - some nice faces there, though I forgot you have to climb that bit after the bridge.
