Comments
Comments: Great conditions for a spring trip to Wambeck. Only a bit of monorail just before Starr King and in between the two peaks. Microspikes made it easier to deal with. Snow should be gone in a couple weeks if not sooner. Mud is there especially on first mile of trail but not terrible. Lovely day on trail with not too many people. Kinda liking mud season for the tranquility.
