|Water Crossing Notes:
||i counted 8 significant crossings up Pine Bend, and about 10 coming down Sabbaday Brook. i bushwacked around 2 pairs of crossings on sabbaday brook as they were impassable |
|Trail Maintenance Notes:
||lots of down trees, the trail was very hard to follow. Myself and the two other parties i spoke with near the summit all were offtrail for about an hour or so during our respective ascents. |
|Lost and Found:
||i underestimated this one. snowshoes were a must, and with them on i was still postholing through and/or sliding around. lost the train up Pine Bend in the ravine somwehre, and chose to top out in the ravine and bushwack across the ridge to find the trail. it was a moose poop party up there. |
descending sabbaday brook was really tough, and frankly shouldnt have been attempted in this trail condition. i would give it a few more weeks of melt before getting to these north-facing trails, they are very difficult to follow, and difficult to traverse.
