Webster-Jackson Trail: Uneventful. Made it to the summit in decent time and trail was fine, albeit a bit muddy.
Webster Ridge: Muddy, some snow but easily avoidable. Rungs from the stair section leaving the building are missing, so be mindful where you step. Bugs are around but tolerable.
Crawford Path: Unstable monorail just below tree line. Didn’t use spikes, but it is slippery in spots. You can get around it with some work. Rest of the trail down was mainly wet and muddy. Bugs were bad.
