Comments
Comments: Second up the mountain today. Would suggest ascending south peak as it is still very icy while the trail off the north peak is essentially dry and free of ice/snow. Barebooted trail all the way up north, put the spikes on along the ridge. The ridge was stable but somewhat slippery at times which is why I found the spikes helpful. Definitely suggest spikes for the trail on south
