Comments
Comments: Summer conditions until about a mile into Ethan Pond Trail. From there, spikes were on and off until the summit of Willey. Willey Range Trail between Willey and Field has an extremely narrow monorail that is unstable for more of the trail than it is stable. Lots of postholes and deteriorating monorail as well. It was not worth going back the way we came, so we ended up taking the A-Z trail back down to the Highland center after bagging Tom. Traction is a necessity right now, as is some patience and careful footing.
