Comments
Comments: Ice and snow started at 1800 ft, was snow covered by 2400. Met 20-30 hikers between Liberty and Flume. Trail is well packed. In the afternoon trail became very slippery with the warm temps. Slush on rocks for the descent down Liberty Spring with some running water. Bare booted on the way up, but you needed traction on the way down - as a couple in sneakers was learning trying to get down. Hope they made it event free.
