Comments: Spikes needed after about 2.5 miles up Stony Bk. Two to three inches of snow with ice patches. Ledges passable but tricky in spots. Last two steep sections before summit cone were a challenge with snow on all the rock and no obvious hand holds. Decent on Carter-Moriah fine with spikes...some tricky steep ice but can go around by holding onto branches. Should keep spikes on until at least a half mile past the open ledges on the decent. Beautiful mostly sunny day with no wind until early afternoon then light wind.
