Comments
Comments: We walked up the road, eventually following cuts, flagging, and herd paths, with some bushwhack mixed in. We quickly emerged on talus and made our way to the top. Of the five equal contours, we found the north most to be recognized. There is lots of fire damage. Very nice views. We walked along all bumps, leaving the south one on a fairly obvious cut path. We followed the path along the ridge, going over a significant bump. Following the bump, we found the path to end abruptly. We bushwhacked in sometimes open and other times tight woods to the south peak. The woods near the top are tight. The highpoint is recognized and there is a very interesting cairn near the top. From the highpoint, we worked through thick woods, which soon opened up, as we made our way to the road on the southwest slopes of the ridge. We followed the road to the road running through the Farmer/Ab col and bushwhacked up to Farmer. We found mainly good woods on the way up to the recognized highpoint. On the way down, we go pulled south and hit some steep thick stuff. Regaining the northeast ridge, the woods got better, but once things leveled off, tight woods stood between us and the car. We pushed through arriving close to bryan's car.
