Comments
Comments: Great conditions for this hike. Off and on icy monorail from the start gradually turning into a sidewalk after the first steep section. Micros until about 3700 feet then switched to Hillsounds due to patchy blue ice. From North to Middle Tripyramid monorail is still rock solid but has quite a bit of postholing. On the return I dropped down to the North Slide for some great views and a shrill thrill.. This is super steep and requires good traction. It was nice crossing paths with ten others enjoying the fine weather and views of Mt Washington and Waterville Valley and beyond.Monorail was softening up at lower elevations on the return trip.Snowshoes along for the ride today. 560/576
