Ascent Trip Report

Just like late spring hiking, minus the leaves on the trees and no bugs!! Microspiked from just after the spring and back, some had barebooted. Unless more snow...Snowshoes will not be needed on this route, mostly ice monorail (nothing at all below the spring) with just a few deep drifts left up high.
