Comments
Comments: Terrific blue sky day, not a cloud. nice cool temps, only slight NW wind. All trails covered with excellent crust but a few spots required care due to solid ice bulges (we did have a slip that led to 20 yard fast slide, but no injury). Segment of Webster Cliff between peaks does have irregular postholes, but but still manageable surface. All in our party did well with microspikes, but crampons would do well, too. Trickiest location is up/down to Jackson summit by way of Jackson limb.
Crystal clear views all around.
