Ascent Trip ReportTrail was hard packed snow from the Loj to Marcy Dam, Dam was frozen and could cross it. Trail still hard packed most of the way to Tabletop junction, but getting a bit looser. First went the short way to Indian Falls, the very short spur was not broken; about 8 inches or so to break to get to the falls, easily done. Back down to Tabletop junction for the unmarked herd path. About 8 hikers were descending and said they had broken out the trail, which made for a pretty easy ascent. Easy to follow; be sure to turn around to see some nice views. After a good elevation, a stretch of flat (hence, Tabletop?) to the sign marking the summit. A view shortly past the summit.
