Comments
Comments: Trail up to Tipi is clear of snow and ice. A bit muddy in places but overall in good condition. I used spikes from the Tipi down to the end of the switchbacks in the Col and was glad I did. The rest of the trail to the summit was clear and no traction needed. I think most others used no traction and they got by OK. Another few days of melting and they won't be needed at all.
