Comments: Today was a lot more enjoyable then yesterdays trip up Carrigain. Monorail initially starts at 2700' and is patchy up to the crest of Burnt Knoll at 3000' than patchy up to 3400'. Finally put on spikes at 3500' after finding a nice sitting rock. Mostly stable and kinda narrow dirty monorail up to the junction with Garfield Ridge Trail, from here its a sticky frozen granular, still got a little ways to go to become full fledged monorail. Spikes went off at 3300' on the descent where monorail ends other than that patch from 2700'-3000' that is easily barebootable. No views, and a dry boring roadwalk
