Comments: Left 13 Falls camp early this morning (6:45) to make our way around the west side of Owls Head. Rain started to sprinkle around 8:00, and just as we were starting the climb for the slide it started pouring. Footing was fine, still the same jumble of rocks wet or dry. Big, newish open spots around the flats heading to the summits, seemed like a lot of blow downs judging by the cuts to clear them up. Rain stopped around 9:30, and we made our way halfway down Brutus whack before another wave of rain moved through. Gave us a run for our money! Arriving back at Lincoln Brook Trail, we started out trying to cross without dunking any feet, but lost the fight and gave up. Half ran most of the trail out before the rain subsided. Water levels were manageable even after the downpours. Black Pond route has so many offshoots now, we tried to follow this to the truest form - as we did with Brutus. Sunshine and 70° once we were halfway across Black Pond route. We just laughed and kept on keeping on!
