Comments
Comments: Was able to do the entire loop w/spikes n ice axe. Majority of trail is packed snow, w/moderate amounts of both blue ice and bare rock on the ridge mainly on Truman n S of Lincoln summit. Scrambles on the agonies were rather dicy as lack of good footholds n not enough snow to safely slide/glissade. Saw about 20-30 people so trail is completely broken out, snowshoes overkill, bring crampons, cut steps on steep infamous slab about 1/4mi below summit on Greenleaf Tr.
