Comments
Comments: Did this one with Monica and the Random Group of Hikers. Cloudy day but warm. Lots of water on the trail down low as the snow/ice up high continues to melt. Feet got soaked and filthy - glad I had gaiters. The Glen Boulder Trail was pretty much snow free until the final mile before the junction. Stable monorail. We put our spikes on when we re-entered treeline going down Davis Path. There were short sections when didn't need them but kept them on. There is one "re-route" because of a higher blowdown. Looks like it has been there a while - the trail just disappears. Go around to right and pick it back up in the other side. Softening ice on the climb up Isolation Spur.
