Comments
Comments: Easy for the first few miles and pretty dry. Just normal spring runoff. Last mile was in snow. Monorail very unstable, especially coming back down. Spikes on and off, but could have bare booted it. Actually did from the bare section of ridge above tree line to summit. Awesome views, lots of grey jays, and a nice long lunch at summit.
