Beautiful day, with a horrible forecast. It was forecasted for 8" of snow and we didn‘t get anywhere close to that. Storms were coming in chunks separated by wonderful hours of blue sky and sunshine. However - white out conditions up top. Winds in this area were serious. As soon as we hit the summit ridge we couldn‘t see two feet in front our face and were constantly leaning into the wind.
I wore microspikes the whole day and wouldn‘t have thought of taking them off. Snowshoes are unnecessary. At most, there was 1-2‘ of snow - but that only came in small patches. You can easily walk around the deep drifts and stay on solid ground
