Iceaxe - AT - Jun 3, 2011 - South Twin Mountain
Spent last night snug in my tarp while wind whipped fog deposited rime ice on the leading edge of every branch and needle around me. The standing pools of water did not freeze and the air on the lee side of the mountain feels like it's in the high 30's. I managed just over 21 miles yesterday and that was a 95% effort. The trail here is really what we call out west a scramble. Many times i had to use my hands to climb and descend boulders. It is pretty awesome! Much more challenging than i expected but thats a good thing. I am feeling very strong and will try for 20 more today. I have no way of knowing if this weather will clear tomorrow but at this point i am commited. It kinda hurts to be missing so many views here but there is no guarantee this would have been clear had i waited in town. You just get what you get and deal with it. The crackle of rime ice and gusts of wind are the only sounds here in this sea of fog atop the peak. CHEERS-Iceaxe
