Ascent Trip Report

Arrived at 1PM and parking lot was busy, but plenty of space available.
Did the loop counter clockwise. Microspikes used nearly the whole way...took them off on the lower ridge of Dickey on the way down because snow was so slushy.
Still plenty of very icy spots on ledges heading up Welch and off the shoulder of Dickey. I was surprised how much snow was still covering the large open areas on the south side of Dickey!
