Comments
Comments: Lower trail is almost packed sufficiently for boots, but not quite, especially when heading downhill with gravity to assist with postholes. Snow becomes less consolodated along the sidehill section ~2600 ft, and up to the summit. Drifting near the summit. No visible ice. Trail to East Baldpate has not been broken out. Table Rock spur trail is well packed except near the rock where there are substantial drifts.
