Comments
Comments: 6-12’ of snow, can do most of this hike without traction. There were a few icy spots where spikes come in handy. We had snowshoes but didn’t need to use them.
You won’t want to miss the Willey viewpoint, not far past the summit.
Looking down the trail towards the ladders was not broken out.
