  • Doubletop 2/5/2019

    A half dozen snowshoed hikers traveled up and back from Seager by the usual route on a sunny February day with *warm* breezes. According to the register, two groups of two hikers each had been out before us on 2/2 and 2/3. We followed their tracks for the most part, picking our favorite when they diverged and improvising in a few spots.

    As might be expected on a warm day the snow softened as the day went on, but we got down without too much slippery sliding. Deeper and softer snow at higher elevations. Itís beginning to get thin on the trail and in the lower areas under the conifers.

    specs: 5.21 miles, 1,800í ascent in just under five hours.

    snowshoe specs: 1 MSR EVO, 1 MSR REVO, 2 Tubbs Alp Flex, 2 MSR Lightning Ascent, all fairly diminutive
