Comments: M-Spikes are helpful going up and down. Various spots so keep them handy Ridge is clear on ice/snow. MonoRail was mostly solid. Careful on the edges. Beautiful day. Zero Wind... Calm and peaceful. Story of the Hike: Ran into young man who was back for a return trip after suffering frostbite the last time up back in February. He seemed very proud of his finger nail-less fingers with obvious tissue damage. Yet during this ordeal he somehow managed to take video of himself with frostbit hands at the top of Little Haystack.... at night!

I'm keeping my finger nails.

Happy Trails.
