Comments
Comments: The west side of the mountain is very, very icy. Without micro spikes, it is virtually impossible to summit. We decided to turn around at the wardens cabin due to conditions. It was fogged in this morning so that was part of the consideration, but since there were no views and conditions so bad, we threw in the towel. After a few snowfalls the trail will be great.
