 Details

Windy in the morning, calm in the afternoon.

Packed trail to the lake. Mostly continuous firmish snow to the summit. Put snowshoes on at the glacier (mainly so I didn't get blown off into Kansas) and kept them on the remainder. One of the very few times I was glad I was wearing them.

1) Winds up the glacier
2) From near the summit looking back towards the glacier
3) Approaching the summit
4) James from summit of Kingston

Do you think crampons would be fine in lieu of snowshoes? It sounds like the snowshoes were more for balance than they were for keeping above the snow.
