Did the ridge via the Ore Bed Brook trail from Johns Brook Lodge. Johns Brook crossing took a bit of time as the river was swollen from Monday's torrential rains. Trails are very muddy, bring bug repellent.

All but the lower slabs were dry, cables were incredibly easy to use - watch out for the one that's like a garden hose, it's springy! Views are amazing from all three peaks. The flats in the cols were very muddy and ledges on descents were slippery and wet.

Great day to be on this ridge, very busy for a Wednesday. http://summithikinginnewengland.blog...-adk-1346.html
