Comments
Comments: Mt. Roberts Trail up through the ledges was mostly snow free (some snow/ice on the flats behind the pasture) with some mud in a few places.

In the softwoods above the ledges, there was instantly a foot of wall to wall snowpack (some of Monday's snow remains too). Footbed was firm enough to boot today, as the cloud cover minimized the spring sun. Final stretch to the summit was bare, but I could see plenty of snowpack on the non-south facing slopes. I would want snowshoes if I were continuing on the ridge.
