Comments
Comments: Started at Hellbrook trailhead just before noon. Trail was pretty wet going up. About halfway up to the ridgeline snow was on sides of trail but the trail was wet. About just as you get up to the ridge the trail turned to pack snow. Just when we reached the ridge we put on microspikes to go up to the Adams Apple, microspikes were necessary at the point to get up to the Adam's Apple and then down and up to the Chin. Went down the cliff trail to take the gondola down, with all the snow and ice there was a very short sketchy section on the cliff trail that even with microspikes on you had to be very careful.
