Comments: We packed for three seasons and used everything. Beginning of trail was dry, which became muddy. About a half mile after main water crossing, snow began to appear. Spikes from there on in. No snow at the summit. Nice views. The col on the trip back to Liberty after Flume started to be mushy and slippery. The descend down Liberty was a tough one as it was getting warmer and the snow was breaking down making footing tough. It was a relief to remove spike. Water crossing was higher (as mentioned) on way back and lot more muddy.Great trip!
