Comments
Comments: Great day for the Hancocks. First time ascending the Arrow slide and it was a blast.There is still some water flow in a few spots on the slide about half way up and these parts are tricky and did my very best to avoid. I ended up popping out very close to the summit through some extremely thick,dense trees. With the exception of one very small spot of snow between N\S peaks trails are bare. i did notice some erosion descending from the South Peak. It was nice chatting with the three hikers at the summit as well as the six others i met on the way back.
