Comments
Comments: Used spikes up to Gem Pool, where we switched to crampons. Wore those up to Lakes of the Clouds. Kept them on to climb Mt Monroe, but microspikes probably would have been better. Spikes back on for the ascent to Washington.
The path down Trinity Heights Connector, Gulfside, and upper Jewell was 1-2’ deep of melting snow. Snowshoes would work here. The majority of Jewell in the early afternoon was spring snow/slush. Waterproof boots essential.
