Pretty standard conditions for early winter. Not too many places where there is snow that is unavoidable. The last drop to the saddle before Grizzly was pretty well covered. The last pitch up Grizzly had quite a bit of soft snow where the trail kicks around to the west of the ridge proper.

You can still avoid the class 2/3 rocks by dropping down on the east side, as shown is some of the pics. You can stay on rocks/grass.

I appreciated my traction.
