But in the past few years the National Forest folk have paid good money to engineer the trail to file off the rough patches. At some of the more difficult sections they did slight re-routes and put in very stout stairs so that you can continue onward and upward without having to result to climbing up rock walls like a spider monkey.
In some ways, I'm relieved. But I always did enjoy a scrambling route now and again. That's gone from this particular trail.
|These stairs are really solid!|
|The cliff faces and boulders that once had to be climbed hand over hand.|
|These staircases kick ass. Solid as they make 'em.|
