Comments: One night trip. Stayed at Garfield Ridge. Just a few patches of icy monorail that need care - summitting garfield from the junction after the campsite still has a steep monorail that requires a few steps on it (mostly avoidable) and heading up Flume from Liberty has a nice ~2ft high monorail that you'll have to step on. I managed fine barebooting - your call

overall superb spring conditions. A nice adult bear passed me on the steeps of osseo as I chilled at the overlook - seemed very keen on getting up flume
