|Peak:||Mt. of the Holy Cross (14er)|

This might be my last 14er of the season and it was a great one. Conditions on Holy Cross are great right now. Hiking the North Ridge there was snow all the way up until 13k. The snow varies from an inch to 8 inches but was only a minor inconvenience and did not hinder my climbing efforts. I would highly recommend Microspikes for the traverse. We hiked Halo Ridge down which was in great condition with a few inches of snow from the shelter all the way back to the trailhead.
