Comments: Lincoln Woods Trail was hard ice, the rest of the trails were hard-packed snow. I wore microspikes all day except for full crampons on the Brutus descent. It varied between snow-covered ice and packed snow. Others wore microspikes descending and seemed to do fine; I was glad I had my crampons, K-10's would've worked well also. Brutus bw really did become a bushwhack, a group in front of me lost the corridor going up and began staying on the contour and headed for the slide. I headed steeply uphill and regained the corridor, so there are several routes; when in doubt, stay right and go uphill. The water crossings were interesting, they are bridged right now with ice and snow, but the ice is flaky and bubbly, like it has a lot of air pockets, so the bridges seem flimsy. On the last crossing heading out, on my last step before I stepped back on the trail, I was hearing a quiet cracking sound. Be careful on those crossings this weekend.
