Comments
Comments: Thanks to Dave Chase for dropping me off at the Ethan Pd Trailhead. Snowed most of the day. Started with spikes. Used them to the top of the ladders. Some folks went up a few days ago and kicked steps on the steeps. I added a few. Had to chop one step in the ice just below the top of the ladders. Be prepared to self arrest:)
