Nice picture! Is it from Kearsarge Pass? So is the road snow free to Onion Valley?
TheGeneral wrote:Deb, we used axes and crampons on the west side of Birch Mtn. last weekend. No snow until 10,000', and it was patchy. Snow was good, and maybe we could have gotten by just kicking steps in the early morning. Definitely aluminum crampons would have been fine.
I'm pulling this out of my ass, but I'm thinking you might want the crampons on East Vidette. Maybe not.
