Comments
Comments: Great day. Shorts & tee shirt. Nice warm up hike. Dry trail more than half of the way up. Mostly avoidable snow/ice on way up. You may want microspikes, but snowshoes not needed. Ledge at the top was free from snow & ice. Loved the ledge coming down Firescrew. Past the ledge on the way down, spent some quality time in the postholes of others and contributed a couple of my own.
