      Some pretty run down sections that need a ton of maintenance. Lots of rotten woodwork, don’t trust it based on visuals... This used to be a sick...

      Very wet and still under snow at the top. A massive root ball at one of the Climb trail junctions has destroyed some wood work and the trail.
