Comments
Comments: the road portion of the hike was partially frozen with some crusty snow and small patches of ice. off the road on the trail there was a pretty continuous thin layer of crusty snow with minor ice up to the quarry trail. occasional patchy snow and ice to mt major and back across to straightback. no snow or ice of note over anna to mack. some ice on the ledges ascending to klem then crusty snow reappeared near the summit. mix of bare trail, thin crusty snow and minor ice over rand and west quarry back to reed road trail. i carried light traction, but all that was needed was a little care in sections today.
