Went down this way instead of downhiking the Hell Brook trail.
By most standards, the Profanity trail is steep, wet, and rough, but compared to the Hell Brook trail it's pretty easy.
If anybody in your party is afraid of heights, the Profanity route avoids the exposed spot just north of the summit, which you'd face if you were following the complete Long Trail to/from Smuggler's Notch (or if you reached the Long Trail from the Hell Brook trail).
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
