Ascent Trip ReportThe trail was good. Still snow and ice patches every so often. You can get by without crampons but need to be careful going over certain areas. Thanks to the traffic there's usually good foot prints. The trail wasn't muddy. There was only one area up to the second peak that had a bit of a creek from the melting snow but you can easily get by without getting your feet wet. The scramble up to the second peak is bad. Snow and ice. This is where crampons would come in handy. If not just take it slow and steady. There is also a chunk of snow in the break of the chains up the rock side - this is very dangerous as you have no chains to help you as you need to step onto the snow. Make sure to hold onto the tree for support to not slip off the rock face. I recommend bringing two pairs of gloves because one may get soaked in the scramble.
Overall trail conditions are good. The first view point would be easy I would think. Use caution with the second.
