Comments: Great day to be on the trail. Monorail started just after 3700'. Because of the cold temps overnight and our early start, the monorail was stable and we flew with our spikes. The section just shy of the junction had lots of post holes, which will hopefully help break it up when warmer weather returns. The steep section above the junction with the GRT also had post holes, which made ascending and descending easier. There was once patch of ice at that right hand turn below the steepest section right beneath the summit, but that was the only place that required any special care. Hopefully it will be all dried up in another week or so.
