      Does anyone know the status of Vivian creek parking? Is it open or closed due to covid-19

      Hiked to the summit this past Saturday the 25th (started at 5am) … You can’t get to the Vivian Creek parking lot, but the larger Big Falls lot is open … And based on the information from other hikers who reached the summit after me, it filled up rather quickly … Hope this helps …

      That’s very helpful Kenny. Did you need snowshoes or crampons near the higher parts?

      Snowshoes would have helped from just past High Creek Camp until the summit … But it was manageable with microspikes, which is all I brought … On and off post holing which made it quite a trudge at times, but there were tracks I followed and they helped managed the work … I suspect with the nice temps this week, the trail should be further packed down, so I presume snow shoes won’t be needed at all by tomorrow … But I’m a newbie in alpine conditions so don’t hold me to it!!

        What about gaiters?

      I didn’t have gaiters either but they also would have been beneficial …
