Went to the ridge just before you tackle the trial to the summit and/ or springs. Not all of My group had poles and crampons or grips that would have been good to continue with so we will hit the springs next time. The ground is compact, still frost and not completely frozen at the trail start but freezes up with more snow as you head up. Views were amazing still. We were bummed not to see (at a safe distance of course) the mama grizzly and her cubs that have been frequenting the area. Plans to do this one again so we can conquer the mountain and chill in the springs.
