Comments
Comments: Holt Trail to Grand Junction was mostly dry and in good shape. Upper Holt was wet with lots of blowdowns from recent snowstorm. Scramble ledges still wet too - not recommended for this with issues with heights, or without really grippy shoes.

Clark Trail and Holt-Clark Cutoff were very muddy.
