Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Crawford Path near the bottom was a little soupy but got more firmer and pieced together the higher you went up. Spikes would be move but you could make the case for snowshoes right now to help smooth things out. There was a stable monorail (still level with snow around it) in the middle where most of traffic has gone but just one step out and, well, you can see the evidence of many a posthole. Pierce to Eisenhower was spikeable but many postholes and booters from the past have frozen up. Its manageable to maneuver around so not too awful. Eisenhower Loop trail is essentially snow free. Last .75 is bare rock to the summit coming from the South. Not sure about the North side (probably snow) but looking up the ridge even the South Face of Monroe was snowfree. Assume trails will start nice and firm and become soft especially low as the day rolls on tomorrow (Saturday). Snow incoming on Sunday/Monday. Could be a nice thump
