Comments
Comments: Trail was mostly well packed; although some sections would have been more comfortable with snowshoes, it was easily passable in microspikes. Spur trail up to the top had some sketchy sections, and there were some bum slide tracks where others had coasted down. Would have been nice to have an ice axe/crampons to get up and down the last 100 ft or so, but was able to summit with my spikes and scoot back down hanging on to some trees to slide back.
