Comments
Comments: Nice day out, the afternoon rain never materialized. Second car at lot off 116 at 8:45am. Lower trail in good condition except a few large patches of deep mud. Enough rocks to mostly pick your way through. All of the streams were rock-hoppable, nice flow at the little falls along the way. After Bald Peak turn-off trail gets much steeper and quite wet and muddy. Patches of ice and snow started about 700m from ridge and grew to longer patches of rotten monorail and soft packed snow. On the ridge to the summit there is still quite a bit of melting monorail and mushy snow. I didn’t use the spikes, just treaded carefully.

Beautiful views from the ledge, hardly anyone out today.
