Comments
Comments: The angled ledges were mostly wet and potentially slippery. The usual mud spots can usually be traversed on stones/roots or avoided using bypasses. The chimney between the peaks was mostly dry so it can be safely ascended. Most hikers used the bypass around the chimney. No snow. The clouds lifted and thinned later in the day permitting views of most peaks below about 4,700 feet around the Pemi wilderness. The best views are from the short side path to the north just before reaching the large ledge area on Mt Osceola or from the rock outcrop on the west slope of East Osceola.
Met many hikers today. One youngster hiked his first 4K peak today. Had a nice conversation with two women from East Osceola to Tripoli Road.
