Comments: A nice hike, despite the clouds and drizzle. There's plenty of water flowing down along the trail once you get up past 3500ft. You'll still need to watch your footing for a couple of hidden ice slabs. There's 1/8 mile of sustained monorail around 4500ft, which is best passed with traction. But that's the only section that needs it -- no need to swap traction on and off on repeat.

No views, summit stayed buried in the clouds while I was there.

Otherwise, very classic early spring conditions. Wore standard summer boots, got wet but not soaked. A great hike to warm up the dog for the season.
