Comments
Comments: Bare ground ascending Dicey’s until about 2900 feet (3-4 tenths of a mile before Rollins junction). Snow coverage became consistent and traction worthy from there. Wore my Hillsound’s beater spikes from 2900 all the way to Passaconaway summit and back down then over to Whiteface summit. I did and out and back via Dicey’s so removed traction around that 2900 foot elevation on the descent. Packed snow under about an inch of slushy snow. Slightly more slushy stuff within about 2/10ths of the Passaconaway summit. Minimal ice flows here and there but with sticky snow on top.
