Comments
Comments: Air Line is packed but also icy below Durand Scar Ridge. It's better to go up that trail than down. Experience on ice needed in my opinion. Above treeline, you can rock hop all the way up the mountain excepted nearby Madison Hut where there is some ice. Spikes needed at lower elevations. Snowshoes to hit less traveled trails...
