Comments
Comments: The snow is packed from the very bottom of the trail so microspikes were nicer to avoid slipping. Once you get to the ledges, they are absolutely needed as there is ice on the rock and snow on top of it so it is slippery. I did see people without traction, but I recommend bringing it.
