Comments
Comments: A lot of wet leaves on the trail making things slick in spots. Rocks on the upper portions of the trail were also quite wet and slick. The last 1/3 of the trail had numerous spots where there was ice on the boulders/rocks. All avoidable if you take your time and go around the side of the trail. It wouldn't hurt to pack spikes going forward to be safe. Wintery conditions (cold, windy) at the summit.
