||I wouldn't take just *any* dog up Blueberry Ledge Trail due to the scrambling required. |
||Didn't notice 'em yet... |
|Lost and Found:
||Funny collection of broken YakTrax and the like at Ferncroft kiosk. ||
||This is mostly an ice report. I barebooted all the way up BLT to the south summit. There was a bit of ice that was easy to avoid, and ledge was mostly dry. Wore spikes down south summit towards true summit, then on-off 3-4 times along Rollins. There is more ice on the Whiteface side of Rollins. |
Removed spikes for good well before DMT jct. There is one spot high up DMT near Pass summit where spikes could be used for a few steps, but it is relatively easy to avoid. Walden Trail (just very top section) and East Loop are pretty ice free.
So... One could climb Passaconaway and Whiteface sans traction right now; just do them separately!
