Comments
Comments: The trail was relatively easy on my way up with the exception of a few patches of glare ice on steep sections- they can be worked around, but require some caution. The views from the top were spectacular and clear and the wind was fairly tame, although very cold when it did blow through. The trail was a mushy mess on descent- still manageable with just microspikes, but while I didn't post-hole at all myself, the trail was Swiss cheese. I brought my snowshoes and while I didn't use them, I would have needed to if I had gone off-trail for any reason. We seem to be well into shoulder season already, so plan accordingly!
