Comments
Comments: Rocky area near top just about 99% clear of ice. A bit breezy but great views. A lot of folks on the trail later in the day with inadequate gear. In sections there is ice covered with snow making micro spikes essential, the loop to the falls had several of these spots. When stepping off trail to allow others to pass up high there is easily 3 feet of snow in woods.
