Ascent Trip Report4 Seasons Hiking Meetup - The trail was covered with ice and then 2" of wet snow. The trail crampons kept clumping up with wet snowballs. Also, the points did not make good contact with the ice, so there was a lot of sliding and slipping. I experienced Fall in Winter. We set out promptly from the parking lot at 8:35 and returned at about 1:00 PM. We climbed Turtleback and then descended to the trail that would take us up Baldknob but we turned back due to the icy conditions.
