Comments
Comments: Overall the monorail is holding up pretty good. I used spikes for the first 1.3 miles. I put snowshoes on at 1.5 miles to mainly help with the elevation gain. Heading up to East Peak was slow going. Took the snowshoes off at East Peak. Going between the two peaks was pretty smooth, the trail held up nicely in spikes. Opted to go the bypass route around the chimney due to some ice but probably could have gone up it. Used spikes the entire descent but slid a little bit in some parts.
