Long and excellent day on Culebra today! As usual, the snowmobile track from Carlos was excellent up to Four Way. There was an old trench we were able to use up to the summer TH, between there and the ridge though, any old trench had been erased by the wind and we set a new one. From the ridge to the top was a lot of exposed boulders with snow in the gaps, perfect for micro spikes. Winds were mild in most places, low clouds in the AM hours that burned off on the descent.
Start: 6:40 AM
Summit: 1:10 PM
Finish: 5:15 PM
