Lost and Found
Lost and Found: Someone left a pile of orange peels, napkin and snack wrapper on the peak. I picked up a Mountain Dew bottle with gum and cigarette butts in it on the way down. It's a shame that there are people who enjoy places like this, but then trash them for the people that follow them.  
 
Comments
Comments: Microspikes definitely needed. There was ice covering the majority of the trail and difficult to bypass. My microspikes are getting dull and I was sliding on the ice. Lots of people were bushwacking around it. Peak is clear of ice.
