Dry trail. No snow. Nice trail! No ladders or crazy steep spots.

We stayed at the upper ledge for the vista on North. I wanted to descend to the lower one with the view of the pond, as I have memories of sitting there with my father when I was a young teen. Unfortunately, the herd path down to it would require hands (or lighter weight dogs) to get back up, so we stayed where we were.
