Well big day of redlining for sockedin hikes. I got a piece of the link and edmands col. There was plenty of water throughout the hike for sure. We filtered out of the ravine as well as the spring up at the junction at the top of castle ravine trail. The day was cool to start off with but began to get hot and then got muggy towards the end. We both walked away with some pretty red sunburns. We never saw anyone until we hit gulfslide, on the cornice, and then the top of jefferson. All in all great day and not very hard to follow on any of the pieces of trail we were on.
