Trip: Labor Pains, N.Early Winter Spire x2 -

Date: 5/29/2016

Trip Report:


So I did this route last September, then again last weekend. It is a challenging, gamey, and unheralded route that could use some updating. The WA Pass supertopo book covers it well, and I did 2 trs on it on my web journal. Enjoy.

2015 report

second trip.

Thanks for the report! How are the snow conditions up there? Are crampons necessary, or is it soft enough to manage with approach shoes?

The direct early-season trail is barely workable the snow is soft down low and quite firm up high still. The slopes in general are not that steep so no Crampons were used.
