Comments: Patchy monorail started around 2500' (around 2.5 miles in, along the steep drainage section) as that part of the trail sees less sun. Crossing the drainage required a bit of care and patience with the spotty steep slippery snow. Spikes on shortly thereafter and the monorail was less patchy above 3000' although there were some bare patches on the ridge after the junction with Scaur Ridge (no tracks). After that flat stretch the monorail was not elevated for the most part, and it was clear this section had gotten some snow this week (although nothing like the 2' that Mt. Washington got). I laid tracks to the Livermore Junction with some help from a gentleman heading across the Sleepers. Not really enough snow to wish I had snowshoes but enough to sink in at least a few inches even on top of the hidden rail. Plenty of tracks coming from the north slide. Between the peaks there is still at least a couple feet of snow and the descents required some extra care because of the slippery wet snow. One steep section descending North Tripyramid down Pine Bend Brook now has ice exposed but it's avoidable.
