Comments
Comments: We did an out/back to South only. Spikes were perfect for most of the trail, crampons (Hillsound Trail Pros) were very helpful on the half mile steep section going back down So Hancock - could have easily worn them up that section too! Lots of smooth ice covered by a dusting of snow. Snowshoes not needed on this one today - trail was hardpacked / solid. Looks like that will change in a day or two though.
