Comments
Comments: Light snow during the morning made for a beautiful hike. Good conditions below tree-line but the wind picked up near the summit lift with freezing rain. Trail mostly hard packed snow with ice beneath, so wore micro-spikes. Lots of ice over rocks at the top of Harrington, so may want to take Mountain House instead. We did fine with spikes and it made for some interesting bouldering. Saw just one other party the whole time.
