Comments
Comments: I did my normal Clockwise Loop. I barebooted up OPB, Greenleaf and across the ridge. There is minor ice/monorail in the Agonies on OBP and between the hut and treeline on Greenleaf. Falling Waters was better than expected, I have seen it far worst in past years. With microspikes I just cruised right down. The biggest issue was stepping aside for the folks heading up hill without traction.

They must not be running the shuttle yet as the trail was not that crowded. I met one couple on Lafayette that were doing a multiday Pemi loop, they had just come across from Lincoln and reported the trail to be pretty nasty. I had to break it to them that usually the hike from North Lafayette to South Twin is usually worst. I also saw a person who claimed to be a northbound thru hiker.

Hard to beat the weather and the conditions.
