My brother, sister, friend and I had a calm, sunny day all to ourselves on Mt. Princeton yesterday! We drove up the road for 2.3 miles before we had to stop because of ice (see TH report). The trail is almost completely clear, the most snow being on the traverse across Tigger Peak's slope. Once on the ridge below Princeton's summit, there was no snow to speak of. I brought microspikes but didn't use them, and the snow wasn't deep enough for us to use gaiters, although bringing them is always a good idea. My sister and I climbed Tigger Peak as well, and the snow conditions were about the same. Picture #4 is looking back at Princeton while climbing Tigger. We saw one climber on Tigger's summit as we were hiking down, and met up with him on the road afterward.
