Comments
Comments: A good snowshoe track from the trailhead to summit. A few rocks on the steep spots on the lower half of the trail are still evident, but there's a pretty good snowshoe ramp on those steep spots. The final few hundred feet of the trail was also well snow-covered -- the "ledge" a couple of hundred feet below the summit is now a snow ramp, only a few rocks between there and the summit are exposed, and the final slab just below the summit has a decent, snowshoe-able track.
