Ascent Trip Report

Started the day off with flagstaff, then traversed over to green mountain, and then the saddle rock and down. Overall it was a great day of hiking. Beautiful, 55ish degree January day in Boulder. Plenty of people walking, jogging, and walking their dogs along the trails. Conditions were dry about half the time and icy about half the time. Didn't use crampons until the way down green, and should have used them much longer. The ice down from saddle rock to my car got very bad as the sun went down, and I fell a few times. Overall, great day, easy summits, but that's about all I can expect in wintertime for now.
