Conditions: Water crossings, especially the first on FW was difficult. Many icy patches

Special Required Equipment: We did the loop in a combination of bare boots, micro-spikes, Stabilicers, and crampons. No snowshoes needed, full cold weather gear essential.

Comments: Brilliant blue skies, not much wind, cold temps, and a mix of ice, snow, and bare rock. Traction aids of some sort were very useful on the way down from Lafayette.
