Comments
Comments: Ammonoosuc is looking really nice around now. Most of the snow is gone. There are a few patches of ice-based stable monorail with slushy snow on the surface. It'll take a few more weeks for it to melt, but is bareboot-able up. If you go down Ammo, I would still recommend spikes to avoid slipping in a few spots. Overall greatly improved over the past few weeks. No snow above treeline.

Crawford Path to Washington has a small snowfield near the hut, but nothing after that. Great dry trail, no issues there.

Mt.Clay loop had a few snow fields that were slippery, but were small.

Jefferson loop and Cap's ridge are in summer conditions: dry and no snow or ice.
