Comments
Comments: Trail was dry with minor monorail until Hi Cannon, and then it was fairly consistent. Ladder and ledges were both navigable, though the monorail was very narrow around them. KRT to summit was fine. When on the observation deck, watch for falling time as there was a lot falling and also a lot left. KRT to Coppermine Col was brutal, and in hindsight probably not the best choice. Trail was loose, unstable monorail down to hut. From lake to LPCG, trail was very stable monorail with a couple rocks that were easy to walk around. However, people need to realize that it's still too early to wear Converses up the mountain. The trail was the White Mtn. equivalent of Clown College. Do a quick look at NETC before going and don't look stupid. It's not that hard.
