Comments
Comments: Used spikes the whole way, probably should of switched to snowshoes a couple of miles from the summit. I wasn't post holing (unless I stepped to the side to let someone pass) but with the deeper snow at the top, snowshoes would have been better for traction.



The trail is well packed out at this point.
