The upgrades to the trail are great!  Much easier to find the trail than in years past.

The recent snowstorm left its mark on the north slope with six to eight inches of snow to hike through.  It is pretty well packed at this point but definitely some icy areas on the ridge transitioning from the climb up the wash to the north face.

Microspikes were perfect but many people made the top without.   They struggled going down the icy portion, however.
