Route: East Rattlesnake Trail, (East Rattlesnake), East Rattlesnake Trail, Ridge Trail, Col Trail

Trails were maybe 50/50 bare ground and ice/snow. Some decent ice flows on each trail, though generally avoidable. Snow was never more than 2-4" deep in the shade. Extended portions of bare ground. I was able to do the loop without putting on traction, but others may prefer have it just in case.
