Comments
Comments: All in all a great day on the trails. Monorail was stable all the way up, definitely gets a lot steeper and more strenuous once you reach the junction at the north and south peaks but that's to be expected. Gorgeous day with sunny skies and almost no wind at the summit. Just bring extra socks for the water crossings as I did dunk to about shin deep and was very thankful I packed some!
