Comments
Comments: Very easy trail. Going up to Starr King is easy to moderate and steady climb. The ridge between the summits is probably 0.9 miles, pretty level with a few easy ups. It took me about 25 mins to complete this part. Trail is hard packed and frozen. Had crampons all the way, snowshoes had a free ride. The entire hike was very insulated from winds.
