Still a fakr amount of hard packed slippery snow with the token tire grove about top 40% with gaps of dirt every so often. Note: snow starts right...

 A good amount of work was done on October 26th by the Lynn Valley Bikes/NSMBA TAP volunteers at the bottom intersection with Lower Griffen. Very nice for climbing now!
