Comments
Comments: Was basically just going into the ravine to check out ice conditions. The ice was nonexistant for the most part. I was going to do the Huntington ravine trail but the whole area where the trail goes was covered in black ice. Really too thin for full crampons but possibly a bit much for microspikes. The talus field had from trace to ankle deep snow. Many of the rocks were glazed in black ice in spots and made descent tricky with a heavy pack. Once the turn towards the ravine from the main trail the trail was basically a river with large mud sections. The bridges on the way up to the ravines were very slippery, take caution on them. They just looked damp but were actually frozen.
