Comments
Comments: The lower portions of the Flume Slide and Liberty Springs Trails were filled with mid and slush. The Flume Slide was covered with ice and trace amounts of snow but many in our group and the group behind us managed to climb using only microspikes - a few did change into crampons though. A little more snow and crampons would be mandatory. No need for snow shoes unless more snow falls.
