Comments
Comments: Carried snowshoes, crampons, microspikes. Never considered anything other than microspikes (though the ledges shortly after the summit of liberty would have been safer with something more aggressive, they were reasonable with 5+ year old spikes). Snow was deepest between liberty and flume, but nothing more than a few inches (there is some depth on the trail as it was hiding the rocks pretty well).
