Not hard to pass beneath. A tree fall in the lower switch back path above the dry brook bed crossings can be walked around.

Comments
Comments: Perfect day for Mt Carrigain. The 360 degree view from the observation platform is spectacular (perhaps the best in the Whites vying with the view from the Bonds). The long side hill inclined traverse is quite rocky but the footing is not bad. I met about a dozen hikers on this great day for hiking Mt Carrigain.
