Comments
Comments: Beautiful sunny day. Great views from summit.
I started out with microspikes but changed to full crampons. As the trail got steeper there was a fair amount of solid ice.
Carried snowshoes but did not use.
Social distancing. Ran into young couple who were very good keeping their distance. Ran into 3 people on summit who didn't seem to know what social distancing is. Descending summit 2 guys made no motion to move over so I went off trail. One of them coughed, didn't cover his mouth.
