First mud - the bridge immediately after the trailhead.
Other muddy spots but really not all that bad.
Sun filtering through trees made it quite pleasant, ignoring the grade of the trail.
Snow both slushy and firm in places starts in earnest at around the 3.5 mile mark. Up works well since a lot of it was either slushy or dirty enough that traction was not much of an issue. Staircases are snow free.
I will admit to putting on some traction devices for the downhill but I have reasons not to fall.
A really good day and not altogether wiped out - yet.
