Comments: Trail was in great shape. We wore spikes until the junction with Mt Osceola Trail. Switched to snowshoes for the televators and wore them until we were back at East getting ready to descend the steeps, at which point we went to full crampons. Back at the junction, we put on spikes for the way out. The trail was quite firm and it didn’t soften very much at all in the afternoon, which was nice. The other hiker out today wore K10s for the whole hike and seemed fine. The ridge hadn’t had any snowshoe love for a while, it seemed, but we left it greatly improved. Definitely carry snowshoes as there is a ton of snow up high that would be difficult to handle with spikes if it warms up.
