Comments
Comments: Holt Trail to summit was snow free and mostly dry. Ledges generally dry as well (thankfully...would not want to descend this trail, or attempt it if wet). A few minor muddy areas. Glacier ice on Manning Trail, either side of top of Dukes. Careful walking can get one around it without much of an issue. Decent variety of wildflowers - bellwort, trout lily, yellow violet, trillium.
