Comments
Comments: Chose to descend Airline which was a bit of a challenge on the sections that still held snow/mono. Same is true for upper portion of Valley Way, mostly due to overhanging branches. Bare booted the whole thing but bring the spikes if weather cools off. That aside, another terrific day in the Whites!
