via Undermountain, AT, unmarked trail, Mount Frisell Trail, Paradise Lane Trail

Some ice throughout, very icy on a short descent just north of the Bear Mountain summit, I bare-booted with poles, but I did so with some difficulty, would have used stabilicers had he section been longer, or if I was less experienced with ice. Do not attempt without poles. I saw a dog have a very difficult time, not sure they even made the top.

Frissell had some snow dustings, very little ice

I used the route on Mohomed Ellozy's website, very helpful, especially in informing me of the unmarked, yet defined trail enabling me to hike both mountains in one 9.6 mile trip.
