Comments
Comments: Great day up on Liberty, with good views all around. Barebooted until around 3000' then put on spikes. Snow at upper els was well packed, no snowshoes needed. Some drifts on the FRT closest Liberty summit, but all easily navigable.

I walked a short ways up FRT after the Liberty Spring Tr junction and it was much less broken out / packed.

Spring at the campsite was still flowing.
