Comments
Comments: Barebooted until Mt Osceola trail then used micros for rest of hike.
The steeps are slippery and a better choice would of been full crampons.
Coming down from the East peak was difficult without full spikes as the micros were sliding out in many areas.
2 hikers had full spikes on and had no issues.
