Breaking trail in fresh snow from Dawson Saddle to the summit with my good ol’ buddy Sr. Lopez. ~10 miles and 2500′ of gain, the “run” took a slightly unexpected turn and became a 6 hour postholing fest. A little gear testing was done, namely NRS Hydroskins as snow socks. I wore some lightweight Smartwool liners underneath and did relatively well given the time out there. A great day in the mountains.
