Comments
Comments: Trail is clear (if muddy) nearly all the way to Moriah summit. Still several patches of stable/unstable monorail and spring snow along the ridge, in some cases with postholes up to the hip over running water. All pretty manageable and although a pole was helpful the spikes never left the bag, going N-S there was very little on the downhill parts. We took a wrong turn for a few hundred feet and the AT north of the Carter Moriah turn off was nearly impassible with blowdowns, for anyone considering that area. The descent off South Carter was much easier than expected, just some mud.
