Ascent Trip Report

Continued over Balsam past the four-way and over Haynes and up to Eagle. The broken trail detoured far to the right around an icy ledge near the four-way. I kicked steps straight over it instead. The whole trail was well broken with packed hard-frozen snow. Carried snowshoes but wore Microspikes the whole way. The trail was still somewhat grown-in as it has been but not as bad in winter. The summit cairn has grown. Returned via Rider Hollow past the lean-to.
