Comments: Cold day, clear in the AM, cloudy/flurries in the PM. Route to East Osceola broken out. I broke out from East Osceola to the main peak and thence to the sharp left where I continued straight following the old telegraph wire. Turned right at the glacial erratic and right up to the summit of Middle Osceola. On the descent of the chimney, a group of 6 or so was coming up with traction - left shoes and packs on East Osceola.
