Started late at around 12:00am, was hoping for clear skies for a moonlight hike back to the car, with moonrise starting at about 3:48pm, and sunset at 4:30pm.
Was blue skies behind the whiteout conditions starting around the lake and glacier, which was very frustrating. Visibility was extremely variable because of the winds ranging from a calm breeze to gusts strong enough to push me, scraping the microspikes I was wearing down slopes of ice. Turned around at 11000ft, due to not feeling comfortable navigating the terrain in conditions almost impossible to see in.
