Comments
Comments: Carried snowshoes, didn't need them. Bare booted first mile on Blueberry Ledge, then used Hillsounds rest of the day on the loop. Saw a few barebooters, most everyone else, micro spikes or crampons. Snow soft between Whiteface and Diceys Mill but solid base. With he warm weather it will only get more interesting. Ice under snow 2500 feet and lower.
