Comments
Comments: Barebooted the road and the trail until immediately after the stream crossing. Steep section covered in ice necessitated microspikes. After the steep icy section, snow depth increased considerably and wore snowshoes until right before summit. Lots of melting postholes; hard to stay on top of snowpack. Summit bare rock.
