Lost and Found
Lost and Found: My dislike of Pine Bend Brook trail 
Comments: Dry other than the couple boggy spots down low up above the Scaur Ridge trail junction. Patchy monorail begins at 3600' and spikes went on around 3700'. Nasty decaying unstable remnant monorail and icy crust monorail remnant from here up to the summit. Spikes off and able to bareboot down to Sabbaday/Mt Tripyramid Trail jct where spikes went back on till the rock scrambles 100 yards below the summit. Repeat of spikes on/off for each section on the return trip. Sabbaday looks like it has some deep untouched snow from the top jct that combined with its many unpleasant stream crossings and steep slide section is probably not a fun time currently
