Comments
Comments: Packed ice/granular snow highway almost all the way to the summit via Clark Trail, with some areas of blue ice here and there.

With these excellent conditions and light traction, trail is very fast-moving.

(Saw some folks bare-booting on blue ice on the upper ledges -- it wasn't going well for them.)
