Comments
Comments: AT to Pleasant Pond Mt from Boise Rd

I would suggest keeping on the AT the whole way. There appears to be a shorter route that cuts out some trail, but it’s steeper, icier, and currently has quite a few blowdowns that are a pain to navigate around. Probably easier to just take AT around. Could have used spikes in spots on 4/3/21 but didn’t take them out.
