I'm probably going to start with the Grind for now so don't mind if it's not snow the whole way. How's it looking right now? Where does the snow start and will spikes suffice or have you been taking crampons? I'm a little bit hesitant to take the Flint & Feather by myself at this time of year since I've only been up once before in summer and I'd say it sees almost nobody this time of year.
Definitely bring spikes at this time of year but this morning I did not use them on the Grind, there was a skiff of new snow that provided some traction. Flint is seeing more traffic this winter, on Saturday I ran into 2 other parties.
