Comments
Comments: Monorail narrow but solid - intermittent until about 1/2 mile up Mt. Osceola tr. Getting softer as the day progressed. No ice anywhere. Several snow-free patches emerging along the ridge - incl. the Chimney and the Chimney by-pass - both completely snow-free.

Snowshoes went for a ride and they will be of no further use on these trails until next winter. We used Hillsounds ascending and full crampons descending (on the steep sections).
