Comments: Microspikes worked fine on the trail this morning while temps were still cool up until the junction of Mount Osceola trail. From there it was snowshoes for pretty much the rest of the hike. Televators were greatly appreciated on the schlog up to East Osceola. Approaching the summit the snow was a drifted over and 6" deep so the snowshoes came in handy here and across the ridge and back from Osceola. Coming down off of East Osceola I put on the 12pt. crampons (Spider-Man Shoes) to get down the steep section and didn't slip or slide once. When things started to level back out near the trail junction I put the snowshoes back on back to the car as temps had warmed back up and the snow was getting a bit greasy.
