Comments
Comments: Hiked up Lambert Ridge and down Ranger Trail. Trails packed out fairly well with minor drifting in spots. Lots of ice under 2-3" snow on upper part of Ranger Trail causing slippery conditions. We used microspikes with some slipping and couple of minor falls but they worked fine for the most part. Some balling up on spikes from sticky snow. Lots of exposed rock on lower parts where microspikes not desired.
