Comments
Comments: I went up the winslow trail which is shorted and a little steeper than the barlow trail. At the 0.5 mile mark the trail was icy. If I had crampons it would have been ok, but I just had microspikes. I bushwhacked around that icy patch and after that rest of the trail was fine. I decided to go down the less steeper trail on my way back just as a safety precaution.
