Comments
Comments: Great day for owls head under the sun. Crossings were the only eventful part of the day (see above). Just bring some water shoes and extra socks. I used Brutus and found it snow and ice free. The final climb past the rock and the ridge had some patchy and at some times consistent icy monorail. Never put my spikes on but might be worth bringing for another week. Still at least a foot or two in some points along the ridge. Passed two folks on my way out, but nobody else out beyond the usual crowds on lincoln woods
