Comments
Comments: Trail dry up to approx 1.9 miles up where we opted to put spikes on as the trail was pretty much all ice with some running water to the summit. Closer to the summit it was more snow/ice. Spikes just made travel easier on the ice. Summit to ourselves and looked like it had been a bit since others were up there. On the way down decided to take the spur to Lookout Rock. Short and easy stroll but lots of downed branches throughout this area. Only people we saw were around the bottom.
