Comments
Comments: We skied, hauling sleds with packs on them, in about 7 miles on the CVR. We stashed our stuff and headed up the logging road to the right of Reddington. We found the road to the left (there was no visible cairn) and followed this road past the trailhead by accident (the trail goes straight ahead where the road turns 90 degrees to the right). We continued on the logging road until we knew we had missed the trail and engaged the GPS. We saw snowshoe tracks going to the left and farther along to the right and figured that this was the bushwhack from the Crockers to Reddington. We followed the bushwhack (not bad as bushwhacks go), lost the trail, found it again and made it to the top. We thank Erik Bertrand et al for the trail breaking on this section. We started down the real trail on the way out, but it was narrow and really thick, so we returned to the ease of the bushwhack. We hurried back to our stashed sleds and headed back to the car. Some skied and some walked out. We got back to the car about 10+ hours from when we started and figure it was about a 19 mile day.
