Comments
Comments: We used MicroSpikes up; one of us used Hillsounds down. Longer teeth made a more secure descent. The iciest stretch was the half mile above the parking lot. The short, steep pitch above the hang glider platform (usually an ice flow) was mostly frozen snow. We saw one young man in YakTrax, so your milage might vary.
