Comments
Comments: We walked CVR past the startpoint for Redington. We took rough and at times swampy roads (shown on USGS) west towards the south peak. As the roads turned rough and pointed south, we began to bushwhack west. The woods were initially open, but wet. We continued to make progress, realizing we were a bit high. As we dropped down, the woods got tighter, but were never too bad. Reaching the col., we bushwhacked up to the recognized highpoint in open woods.

We returned to the col and launched a whack on the Middle Peak. The bushwhack up included walking along rock and talus, offering some great views. Things were mainly open to the recognized highpoint, where we noted the only prohibitory sign we saw all day.

We chose to return via Redington. We followed off and on cut trails, alternating with bushwhacks that were tight at times, but never bad at all. We noted some artifacts from an abandoned wind project. Upon reaching the recognized highpint of Redingtion we took the standard route down.
