Comments
Comments: We went up Lambert Ridge Trail. For the majority of the trail ice was non-existent or easily avoidable. At about mile 2.5 the ice got worse. It was virtually unavoidable without major bushwhacking. Micro spikes or crampons are needed.

We opted to head back down at the trail junction. The decent of the Ranger Trail was icy for the first 1/2 mile or so. We encountered water and mud on and off the last 2+ miles.
