Liberty on the Lake

     Hello All,
I am back with a review on a great, outdoor staircase. You must be very overwhelmed by all of this, but let me give you the backstory. This staircase, (or series of sets of steps should I say) is a STAIRCASE which leads to a TRAIL which is on a LAKE in ALL CAPS. All jokes aside, this staircase is a true, leafy treat.
     Fall has well, fallen upon us, how punny, and there is no feeling like the one when you are stepping on crunchy leaves, scattered along a pleasurable trip to a pond. Lets have a look at the stats.
Ascendability: 6
Descendability: 7
Tread Depth: 9
Layout: 8
Excitement: 7
User Interface: 8
Upkeep: 3

     Ascendability and descend ability speak for themselves. I gave tread depth an 8 simply because it had a nice combination of foot relaxation and calf work. 8 for layout due to the very well placed frequent rest benches. Excitement was nice, imperfect steps provide adequate stimulation. User Interface was great. Upkeep not so much of a worry since it is an outdoor 'case but is mandatory rating-wise.

             May you henceforth climb in critical ways, not conditions,

ATTENTION Climbers and People

Yes, 'tis me again.
First and foremost, I'd like to apologize for the constant lack of reviews for the past few months. I have no excuses, but rather, a positive look into the future filled with an continuously insightful look into the daunting task of finding the best and worst of the World's staircases.
