Comments
Comments: VERY slippery! I debated putting on my microspikes but there was just too much bare rock. I would recommend them once the water ices up. There were many VERY sketchy sections. You have to be on your game ALL the way to not slip. This was my first time doing this loop with Dickey first - nice change of view!
