Trail Conditions: Icehouse Cyn, Bighorn Pk, & Cucamonga

Trail & Snow Conditions: Icehouse Canyon, Bighorn Peak, & Cucamonga Peak, January 16 2016  

Saturday I loaded up my pack and headed up Icehouse Canyon to test some gear. It was a beautiful day. Here's a pic looking towards Baldy and Harwood, from the ridge I climb to get to Bighorn.
 

Micros or similar traction was needed up until Icehouse Saddle. At that point most used more aggressive traction, as well as helmets, and ice axe.

I've posted some detailed info regarding trail & snow conditions, as well as the gear I tested on my blog.
