Comments
Comments: We headed up Forest City trail which had packed snow with some rocks showing. When we hit the LT trail it was not well marked and it didn't appear anyone had gone on it recently since the last inch of snow. It had a solid monorail with many ice spots. There were 2 blow downs once we got over the ridge that caused people to go in the wrong direction. It is steep and icy so traction is a must. Some bare rocks mixed with ice when we were above treeline. The summit was covered in snow and rim icy so it was easier to ascend. Heading down Burrow' trail was icy in many places especially in the upper part. Still had a solid monorail with little post holing. Only ones on the summit. We passed 1 person on our way up and 6 on our way down. Even with the NW winds it wasn't too bad with the warmer temps. Probably 30 on the summit. With alohabuffy.
