Comments
Comments: Trails in generally good shape. Snow was minimal. Went up by Loop - some icy patches by Falls made ascent without traction awkward (but doable today). Put on microspikes at about 2900 feet -- lots of ice on the switchback slabs on CF Trail.


MS Trail to Middle Sister was mix of snow, ice, and bare rock.


CF C-O was very icy in places. On descent, used microspikes about to lower junction of CF Trail - Falls Loop.
