Comments
Comments: Spikes on just past the Link to summit and back. Snow up to perhaps 5-6”. Saw 5 that turned back, they didn’t have spikes and made a good call. Saw several in a wide variety of footwear without traction that had a great deal of tenacity and were intent on the summit.

Glad JNR was open to get Jefferson in October without a road walk.
