Date of Hike:1.16.08

Trail Conditions: Very hard-packed trail with an inch or two of powder on top of pack. Wright was a sheet of ice. Algonquin was much better. Iroquois/Boundary actually had some snow of moderate depth in spots.

Special Equipment Required: Crampons!

Comments: Another great day in the mountains! Wore my 12pt. cramps almost all day. Props to The Sceptic for somehow getting up Wright in snowshoes (and down without killing himself...). Summit cone of Algonquin was frigid at best; my thermometer read below zero and (fortunately) there was (only) ~20mph winds. 8h5m.
