Comments
Comments: Once above the pond headed to Cabot/Horn/Bulge there was snow and ice that warranted light traction by my standards; consistent trace snow coverage, blue ice, black ice, and one more significant ice flow. Headed over the Rodger's ledge, there was considerably less snow/ice and I chose to go w/o traction.

I bushwhacked down from the Killkenny/Mill Brook Tr. junction to mill brook road, slabbing to hit the road high and close to the car. Sort of a tedious bushwhack owed to slabbing, low-growth, and swampy sections. I'd done another variation of this bushwhack in July.
