Comments
Comments: Road is almost completely snow/ice free. When the monorail started, I went to snowshoes, which I appreciated. From Carrigain summit, I backtracked a short distance on Signal Ridge and then bushwhacked down towards Carrigain Pond. Challenging in-and-out snow conditions, but snowshoes were a must in many places. Woods were not bad, though there were some tighter sections. From the pond, I went straight at Captain, which presented tighter woods than going from the col. I headed down to the col and worked my east to find a reasonable spot to drop into the drainage. I had reasonable going working down to the drainage, often using herd paths. Snowshoes had to come off, but went back on when things flattened out. I followed the drainage out, eventually running into herd paths and finally the road. Fairly long road walk out. Conditions were challenging due to alternating bare ground and deep, wet spring snow.
