    bring extra microspiikes/crampons

    it's ice, ice baby and some are not prepared.
    it's amazing how far a young couple got up the trail before crashing hard on the ice.
    we split our microspikes with them so we all had 1 on the way out.

    You're a good guy Chip! Where were you? The Catskills are EXTREMELY icy right now.

    I climbed Cape Lookoff Mountain and Gillespie Peak in Vermont on Sunday and there was crazy ice, especially on the steep slopes. The trail was like an ice waterfall. At one point I think I saw a Zamboni go by...
