I have been a little discouraged with the current trail conditions as of late, but with a little extra work and good knowledge of the terrain, I was able to avoid the worst of the ice by getting off trail occasionally and taking the NE ridge.  Microspikes were mandatory for the uppermost section and the very bottom of the Amphitheater Trail.  Hiked for the most part (moderate pace) on the up and jogged very easy on the down.
