Comments
Comments: Bring your Hillsounds or crampons until we get some snow - lots of boilerplate ice, especially on the middle, steeper, section of trail. The first half mile was was pretty much a stream bed mixed with some snow/ice. After the river crossing were the steeper, icy sections. The top third was sneaky - the ice was underneath a thin layer of snow. Some sections were fine, others were the boilerplate ice underneath
It started snowing while we were out there, so pretty!

We got a late start, and ran out of daylight when we hit Franconia Ridge Trail - we didn’t want to descend the steep icy sections in the dark.
