Date:  11/17/2012
Team:  tmail, dogman, trudy, spanky, chris, mark, g-$$$
Route:  Crawford Path out and back
Time:  7.5 hours
Conditions:  No snow, but a lot of ice on the trails.  Microspikes would've been helpful.  The ice was extensive on the entire ascent to Pierce and in the saddle between Pierce and Eisenhower.  After that, no issues.
