Many an expletive was uttered on that trail. The Lillian and Slide brook lean to looked pretty good to me that eveningNice! I’m going to assume I did that the same way because “endless descent” is exactly what stands out.
I remember after finishing the 5th peak feeling pretty great. Like, alright we got 5 peaks in and I’m not even that tired and the views are incredible! Had a great time to that point
But that descent...wow! Was I ever miserable by the end. It just wouldn’t end and you were constantly on rocks where you had to really watch your step the whole time. My knees and feet were just cooked by the last couple miles. Mentally exhausting too.
Made me wish we had camped out, out there. Then doing the descent and coming out the next day when fresh would’ve been no big deal.
