Comments
Comments: the road up to the trailhead had full snow cover which was a bit wet and sticky. winslow trail was mostly snow covered and pretty chewed up by booters. a fair bit of blue ice in spots low then in the middle section of the trail there was a lot of blue ice and we chose to bushwhack around a couple of the worst sections. uppper ledges still had good snow cover then were open rock just below the summit. barlow had good snow coverage with a bit of boiler plate and ice up high then mostly hard chewed up snow until it softened lower down.

nice day to be on kearsarge. great views and warm temps with a nice strong breeze on top.
