Comments
Comments: Trails are in good shape. I did notice that some of the rocks on the upper portion of the Agonies are VERY polished and slick from decades of wear. This is not a complaint, just an observation.

My first daylight, trailed hike since March. I figured I was going here I'd better a very early start to avoid the masses and that worked out well enough as it was fairly quiet up to the ridge and onto Lafayette. As expected I did encounter some folks coming up Greenleaf and OBP on my decent but it was never terrible. The partly sunny portion of the forecast never happened - the most sun I saw was through a moderate cloud filter mid-morning, however there were some really interesting cloud formations to the east once on the ridge. Despite it not being too crowded there were signs of the not-so-new normal: some dirty tissues and other trash visible, people playing loud music...kind of a downer :(
