date: 1/23/11

trails: up Old Briddle, down Falling Waters

conditions: well packed below treeline, wind blown powder above tree line, good tracks in the deeper snow/protected areas on the ridge, some exposed rocks on the ridge, no ice, .

equipment: none used (well, except clothing), not even spikes.

comments: not that harsh really - just a normal winter day above treeline. The wind around 1-2pm was probably around 30 mph max so we managed without goggles going south. Visibility was not great but it could be much worse. Meet just one person on the ridge who was going north.
