Comments
Comments: My buddies wore full crampons up Flume Slide, I wore Hillsound Pros (which were barely enough traction), three younger hikers came up in MicroSpikes or smaller traction. Good day out and up, but slow going on the ice. Stay safe, please.
Took snowshoes hoping that we'd get to Little Haystack, but not enough time. Nine hour loop.
