Comments
Comments: Flume slide required snowshoes for a good part. At the climb, crampons and ice axes were utilized to get over some major ice flows. The ridge was great, broken out. We met up with a large group tour from Montreal who did the same loop. Hillsounds' Trail Crampon Pro or your normal crampons or snowshoes worked fine for halfway down Liberty Springs to the parking lot at Whitehouse Bridge. A great day for winter weather in the mountains!
