Comments
Comments: Recommend some traction this time of year! I sadly saw many able-bodied groups turn around due to bare boots. My buddy and I cruised to the top with a pair of Kahtoolas and Hillsounds, easily gripping into the large blankets of clear ice. Previous years we had some lower level Renys Stabilicers and still made it to the top with ease. Great day to be out in the woods! The Ledges and White Mnt views never disappoint.
