Comments: We parked at Jackson-Webster Trailhead and road walked to Crawford Path. Crawford Path is essentially one big ice floe, but there’s a thin layer of grippy snow so we barebooted until the split for Mitzpah Hut. At that point, we donned sharp microspikes. We carried snowshoes assuming that they might be needed on the way to Eisenhower, but the trail was very nicely packed. We ended up caching the snowshoes on the way to Eisenhower to save the weight. Wind was around 25 mph on Eisenhower, but there wasn’t any drifting. We didn’t head down the other side of the Eisenhower summit loop, but it appeared to be well broken. The section of Crawford Path that goes around Eisenhower had one set of footprints…snowshoes would be good if you decide to go around Ike. Webster Cliff Trail and the Jackson leg of Jackson-Webster were also in great shape for spikes. If you had dull spikes, you could wear them pretty much all the way to the car. We removed our good spikes at Bugel Cliff.
