Date of Hike: March 9, 2014

Trail Conditions: All trails were well broken out in typical MW fashion. No blowdowns aside from that perpetual one part way up the steeps. The fixed rope at the "Hillary Step" is gone, for good I suspect. Eastern snow fields are looking good, not so much for Raymond Cataract. Tucks had some tracks, despite the moderate avy danger.

Special Equipment Used: We brought trekking poles, ice axes, crampons, and rope.

Comments: Hiked this one as lead for my work. Another great trip with nine making the summit. Plus running into so many people on the mountain I know. I always like that.
