Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: MIsha survived the day but i would not recommend bringing the dog on Edmands Path, the 1/3 before emerging to the ridge was nerve wrenching experience, going down Crawford Path wasnt the easiest either, even areas in the woods off the main path were iced

Comments
Comments: Going up Edmands path was o for probably 1,5 mile, then it started to get really icy and the last 0.3-0.4 mile was really tricky, going on the slope covered in ice was only possible with crampons on, one secion was especially tough, the ridge was ok with ice patches to Monroe and then to Eisenhower and Pierce, all doable with micros, coming down Crawford path was ok with crampons on,actually pretty easy, i imagine it would be slow going with micros, the last 0,5 mile was bare rock/mud
I am ready for all this ice to go away
