presi traverse in Dec.

Not open for further replies.


I'm planning to try the traverse this Dec, 2002 just before new years.
I have read many articles about the traverse and routes, but I would
like to chat with someone who has actually done it. I was planning to
start in the North and travel south through the range (or is it better
to go up Crawford and do the southern peaks, camp, and then do the
northern peaks)? Is it easy to hitch back to the car from Madison to
I have done most of the peaks in winter as 1day trips and I have all
the necessary gear.
Does a cell phone work up there?
I'm also planning to go solo and bivy along the way, to save on weight.

If anyone is interested in going, lets chat. Everyone I know thinks its crazy :eek: :eek:
