Comments
Comments: The southwest ridge trail to the southwest summit was clear mostly of snow and ice and what was there was totally avoidable. From the southwest summit to the true summit, we used spikes. There was a fair amount of packed snow and ice and no way around it. One couple came up behind us there without traction and turned around. Everyone else we saw had traction. Clear views and a beautiful day!
