Comments
Comments: Spring conditions, with a mix of bare ground, snow, sheer ice, and wet rocks. We barebooted it and were fine with poles. Would be tricky without the poles, though. Spikes wouldn’t be helpful because you would constantly be taking them off and on. Overall nice hike with some great views on both mountains.
