It's a beautiful, clear morning up top. The high yesterday reached 27 degrees. The overnight low was12 degrees. It was 21 degrees and clear at 7am observation. The mountain received no new precipitation and there is still patchy snow and ice on the trails. I would definitely recommend Microspikes if you intend to reach the summit. It's far more fun to hike with assurance than with fear of slipping and seriously injuring yourself in the backcountry. Get out and enjoy the quiet, cold woods!
