May 7, 2016 Muir Snowfield Smoothness
« on: 05/08/16, 09:29 AM »

Conditions away from the main Congo path on the snowfield are some of the smoothest I have seen.  The snow was nice and fast for about the first 1000 vertical feet and started becoming gradually more sticky and mushy below, especially below 8k.  Hiking back up to 9100 feet, conditions seemed to improve, and speed could be maintained to around 8k, though it may have also been the Zardoz that I decided to apply to my base for my second lap.

Somehow, I must have accidentally put the wrong link.  Hopefully, this time it works.
