Will skin up to Muir (avy conditions, time, and weather permitting).  Training for the Patrol race this year so I'd like keep a reasonable pace on the way up (4-5 hrs up).   Likely to be icy in the morning as the freezing level is going high on Thursday so I'm bringing ski crampons.  I set the difficulty to challenging - I don't expect it will be to bad, but you should always be prepared for a challenging trip when going to camp Muir in the winter (weather prediction is clear, but maybe some wind).
