Twice cancelled for weather. Once turned round at 9,500’ for snow conditions. Fourth time carried all traction devices. Micro spikes, Crampons and Ice Axe. Lots of snow above 9800’ but used none of the equipment. Always additional weight. Stream was running just below 9300 Lodge Pine Ledge.

if you are going in the next couple of weeks would recommend taking traction devices even if like me you don’t use them. Snow conditions change frequently.
