Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: 7th crossing of Sabbaday is easy. The first 6 are not. I whacked by the 2nd and 3rd both up and down - an easy and short whack on the east-side of the brook. I was able to find reasonable crossing-points in all cases very close to the trail-crossing but some seriously long steps or jumps on sub-merged rocks are required. All very slippery. Expect to get wet. I did not escape without getting seriously wet - fortunately it was on the descent.  
Trail Maintenance Notes
Trail Maintenance Notes: A handful of blowdowns on Sabbaday Brook tr. (above the first 3 crossings). 2 are a bit annoying but it is all manageable. Lots and lots of debris and "little stuff". I flicked a tons off the trail but there are many tons left for others to help with. Sabbaday is not exactly over-blazed. I spotted maybe a handful of blazes on the entire trail. I found the corridor pretty obvious but some confusion - especially around the crossings - is possible. A trail-runner was returning as I was heading up. He lost the trail after - I think - the 4th crossing and gave up. 2 blowdowns on the Mt. Tripyramid trail between the Sabbaday Brook jct. and Middle Tripyramid.  
Dog-Related Notes
Dog-Related Notes: Georg has gone MIA and I was hiking with his dog, Lucy. She is small and super-agile - handled everything extremely well. Many dogs will struggle at the crossings. There are deep sections in all of them and the water is moving with great force.  
Lost and Found
Lost and Found:  
Comments: Sabbaday Falls were spectacular - probably at its peak right now.

Not much snow left. A couple of patches at the top of Sabbaday Brook tr. and then a few monorail-sections in the col between North and Middle peak. I brought the spikes but they are really not useful anymore.

Bushwhacked to the Fool Killer from the hair-pin turn at the 7th crossing - 3,000 ft. elevation. It is fairly steep and the footing is not great but the woods are reasonably open. No snow. Found a cairn right at the point which looked like the high-point to me. But I found no canister. Not sure if there is supposed to be one at this summit. I whacked around the summit area/ridge quite a bit but did not see a canister.
