Route: Stinson Mountain Trail

Trail had 1-6" of snowpack on it with a breakable crust on top. I barebooted roundtrip without much issue (apart from ice coating the summit), though the areas of 6" (short lived, about 3/4 of the way up) were a little vexing. Would have been too bony to snowshoe. A few areas of open mud as well.
