Any need for snowshoes to get up the lifts. NOAA has called for about 8 inches or so the last couple days, did it really happen and is it pretty packed underneath that?
Also what are some thoughts on going straight up the hogsback vs. crossing hot rocks to get to the old chute?
I hear mixed reports of people roping up. There may be as many as 6 of us. What are some thoughts on that. The last couple times I was up, it was just my brother and I and we didn't bother.
This will be my third climb and hopefully second summit. Thanks for any info.
