    I am definitely interested. This has been such a mild winter, but hopefully it will cool enough that is won't be too muddy.

    If there is snow, is this trail doable with just crampons?

    Thanks for the suggestions! I like the clothespins idea, but I think I might try binder clips because I have them in abundance. I was looking over what I have done and the amount of money I'm...
