Comments
Comments: Parked at the visitor's center. Bare booted to Whiting peak. Ice was patchy and easy to step around. One scramble near Deadtop was a frozen ice flow. Decided to put on Hillsounds and glad I did since scramble is very close to cliff edge. Turned back just shy of Tom due to time constraints but will be back!
