Comments: Snow & ice started just above the Connector - Path junction. Micros were helpful on the steeps but the trail is well consolidated and could be barebooted. Webster Cliff to Pierce summit is bare. Spikes back on half way to Eisenhower then barebooted to Monroe and back to the Edmands Path. The upper 1/2 mile of the Edmands is a sidehill gianther, slip & slide, stick in the eye, posthole nightmare. Snow & ice disappear at 2800'. Path mostly dry to the parking lot. The Mt Clinton Rd is open.
