Comments
Comments: Dry, snow and ice free trail to start. A few wet spots here and there starting at about 2600 feet, first little bits of ice about 2830 feet, more iice, with some snow, as one ascended. More or less continuous snow from 3690 feet to treeline (about .2 miles below summit). I put spikes on about 3830 feet, and removed them at treeline; I put them back on for the descent from treeline to about 3000 feet. I carried snowshoes and crampons, but did not use either. I would estimate 2 to 3 feet of snow in the deepest spots (did not measure). Nice to see Bruce P at the summit -- he said the Gorge Brook Trail was soft. I may have been the only person on the Glencliff Trail today.
