Comments
Comments: Lower portions of hike are on rotting monorail with stretches of open, muddy trail. Above the first switchback things improve with deeper, firm snow but that won't last. Summit ledges are mostly bare rock.

Lovely hike with Chris, with wonderful summit views and comfortable conditions when the higher peaks were all in the clouds.
