    Were there any parts of the trail where you had to use snowshoes ?

    We should have used them after decending Eisenhower but we were trying to beat the storm coming in. We were in chest deep snow at that point, but almost the whole trip was perfect for crampons.

    Default Nice!

    I've been meaning to post that I enjoyed the pictures as well. Glad you guys had the right equipment and made it through safe, and also glad you had a gps along.

    That looks like a great time. A little hairy at times but great memories. Thanks for sharing.

    Anyone looking to do a winter traverse from Madison to route 302 should be made to read this trip report before deciding to take it on. Perfect example of what can happen above tree and how nasty it can truly get!!. Even with the perfect gear and clothes things can get tricky. As I have stated in many of my past post one of the harder things in winter is trail finding. getting lost above tree with a storm closing in can be an extremely scarey experience. Glad you both made it across safely and I guess your G.P.S. will be the first thing in your pack on your next winter climb. Again congrats and now you both have a trip you will remember for ALWAYS.

    As I have been reading trip reports of winter hikes and looking at everyone's pictures, the big question for me even on a good day is - how do you find the trail? Many of the markers are under snow. This has to be hard.
