Comments
Comments: Perfect fall hiking conditions: Cool temps, light winds, clear skies, low crowds, zero bugs. Despite running into a handful of other hikers, we had both summits to ourselves. Excellent! There are some damp spots, mostly on the slabs below the saddle. These were fine to navigate on the way up, but managed to make us slip a couple times on the way down. A map is good to have for this hike, there are several trail junctions packed into the saddle. We ended up giving another hiking party directions. The slabs below the North Percy summit are not for those who struggle with a fear of heights, and my wife is a good benchmark for this: she made it up and down without help, but also needed some encouragement and sat down whenever we weren't moving.
