Comments: Walked Mt Clinton road to Edmands Path. Barebooted to 3500 feet and then used light traction. After the known icy sections the trail starts to show signs of a monorail, where it appears to have seen a lot of action recently. Changed over to sharper more aggressive (hillsounds) for the cone and was glad I did. Fast conditions from Eisenhower summit to Pierce. Lower part of the Crawford Path has lots of running water and thin breakable ice cover.
