Comments
Comments: Great hike. Thanks to whoever broke trail Saturday. Used micro spikes until the last 0.2 miles, then switched to snowshoes, but may have been better sticking with microspikes. That last tenth of a mile to the summit is very steep. Jennie switched back to micro spikes for decent. I stuck with snowshoes back down to about 2800 feet.
