Comments
Comments: We definitely needed crampons going up the steep section and ice axes would have been preferable. Otherwise the whole trail up Flume and down Liberty was fine, the monorail is slowly disappearing. It was hard to make sure of the trail as it was raining/snowmelt as well, turning the trail into a small stream.
