|Lost and Found:
||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.
