Route: Mt. Morgan Trail

Trail had a breakable crust on top of about half an inch of granular and previous snowpack. Probably about 3-4" in the woods. Normally wet areas were wet (in the flats prior to the climb up to the ridge, and then on the ridge in the vicinity of the cliff junction). A few avoidable areas of blue ice. Near summit ledges were also coated in ice, but I was able to get around without putting on Microspikes.
