JMT is closed above Clark Pt. due to the "Ice Cut" issue:


As you can probably see... it's extremely dangerous. This is one I don't fart around with.
Only way I'd do it would probably be with real Crampons. And even then... this photo was taken
after, what, over a month of barely any precipitation.
Always meant to check it out like this... finally did last Monday.

I'd like to see that far side a little closer---I think it might be doable with crampons and ice axe---IF the ice is stable.

The body betrays and the weather conspires, hopefully, not on the same day.

Considering that this part of the JMT is NOT DESIGNATED as wilderness, maybe the Park Service could hull up a Bobcat skid loader and plow out the snow and ice from the trail. Grinning Devil
