Comments
Comments: Great route to tackle the 2 peaks. Especially loved Hamlin Ridge Trail up to the summit - spectacular views and lots of scrambling but WAAAAY less intense than Knifes Edge. Descent via Saddle was slow going, lots of wet loose gravel and scree and slippery rocks/roots. No complaints though. Perfect blue sky day to finish the NE67!
