Really only a few words could describe the experience: post holing.
Quite difficult because of all the snow, tiring you out until the snow ends, which leaves you at Mount Harwood. We decided to bag that peak, and made the slog up the final portion to Baldy quite an intense one. Once we got to the top, it was very cold and windy.
