Comments
Comments: Considering the rain last week things are in pretty decent shape. Spikes on at mile 2.5 (of trail, not counting the mile of road walk before.) Packed snow all the way to the summit. The steeps at the end were easily navigated with micros- a real freeze could create a need for crampons. The snow flurries (and shoulder season) made for a quiet day which was lovely, saw 6 others on the trail.
