Comments
Comments: Truly “Isolated” except for a Moose which was coming from opposite direction. Let him/her pass me by within a couple of feet. Stream trails and slushy snow were the main impediments. A hard trail from start to finish. Did not try the bushwack as it seems soaked even more than the regular trail. Clocked 15.1 miles all in. Great views at top despite the overcast conditions. A few blow downs and river crossing added to the challenge. Picked up some trash but couldn’t find my “trash” of a broken pole top handle after a fall. Slippery on way down. Micro spikes only towards the brief vertical .5 miles near top.
