Less snow on trail than Plateau, but more ice. Large ice waterfalls necessitated crampons on way down, but were able to bareboot it all the way up. Also noted spruce krummholz near top.
1330 Summit Sugarloaf. A white marker near summit faintly reads Sugarloaf 3,800', but we continued on a bit farther. On way down, took yellow-blazed side trail to beautiful viewpoint overlooking peaks to south.
