Comments
Comments: Took OBP up, bare-boots up to hut. Could have put on spikes the last .2mi to the hut, but navigated around monorail with a bit of slipping. Put spikes on just past hut, until broke out of scrub. Bare booted the entire Ridge. Put on spikes once in the trees heading down Falling Waters Trail, and needed them for 3/4 of the way down. Monorail is very narrow, with steep snow on sides. Balanced precariously in several sections.
