Comments
Comments: Sabbaday was really tough for my GF using Hillsound Trail Crampons and Hiking poles. She got pretty nervous on the steep parts which are in honesty very steep, icy and dangerous. The water crossings weren't easy either (her balance isn't the best!). After Sabbaday the rest was easy minus a few technical spots here and there. Kate Sleeper was in great shape and there is water if needed at the junction of Downes Brook Trail. Rollins was nice and Passaconaway Cutoff was muuuch easier than Sabbaday Brook. No water crossings coming down from Passaconaway. Excellent weather and not many people. Love this loop. Saw a couple with no traction and they looked like they were having serious problems. Be safe, bring traction.
