Comments
Comments: Path up to the AMC hut was really well packed, no snow shoes necessary. Two spots that are icy that can be stepped around on exposed rock. From AMC hut up to Mt Lafayette is mostly ice with granular snow. You can get away with microspikes. One area between two cairns (maybe 2/3 the way to the summit) where you would be better off with crampons due to the steepness. Day was a bit overcast but the views were clear. Windy but would die down enough in between gusts for us to travel and enjoy the day.

We attempted Mt. Lincoln but did not have crampons with us and they were certainly necessary. On the descent the snow was starting to soften but no postholes for use luckily. Wish we had seen more dogs :(
