Comments
Comments: The ice made me a little nervous. I used microspikes and they worked really well on the way up. Coming down I didn't have enough confidence to depend on them completely. I had to butt slide the steeper sections around the ladders. I bought rain pants and put them on for the trip down.

On top it was warm and clam. Tee shirt and miles visibility.

Great route for the kids once the ice melts.
