Comments: Perfect conditions going up and at the top. Made it to Liberty then onto Flume and back. I did not do the loop. Some wet areas on the lower part of the Liberty Springs Trail with mixed ice and rock at higher elevations. A few spots up top completely ice over near the tent platform. Very little snow. Poles useful on the desent, snowshoes not needed. I took a look at the Flume slide and there is hardly any snow covering the slide itself. Talked to a coule of guys that went up the Flume Slide Trail--they said it was treacherous in spots. Microspikes are a must for this hike, and make sure they are sharpened.
