Comments
Comments: About 1" to 4" of new snow. Lots of ice hidden beneath the snow. Light traction necessary the whole route. Crampons would work great on the ledge scrambles which were tricky. We had them in our pack, but were able to make it using our micro-spikes. The usual sloppy areas down low on Dicey's Mill.
