We went directly up the gulley below Notch 1(2?) and walked from the top along the Desert View "trail" back down to the tram. A friend walked towards Grubb's Notch and did not see any tracks. I'm surprised that after 2 weeks of clear weather that no one/group has beaten a trail in. Please don't go up without any traction device, you can definitely leave snow shoes at home.

I will leave snow shoes at home, that's actually a relief. I will just plow through snow if I have enough time for a summit bid. This time I'm not soloing and bringing one of my climbing buddies. We're actually attempting St. Helens this Sat together for an early bid for the summit! Then Skyline/San Jacinto next week.
