Comments
Comments: A wide variety of trail conditions typical of shoulder season. Put spikes on almost at the start with some ice and trace of snow. Snow depth increased to a little over an inch nearing Jackson summit. Lots of water ice above the fork and a good section of the Webster branch. Final climb-scramble to Jackson was challenging. Too steep for safe use of spikes and not enough ice for crampons (Hillsound Trail Crampon Pros might have been the best traction to have). Several steep sections descending off Jackson - short butt slided on one.
