Comments
Comments: We followed the dirt road, quickly turning up a skid road headed up the peak. We walked up some cuts with nice views and soon bushwhacked in open woods to the recognized summit. We then bushwhacked along the Caribou ridge over the recognized highpoints of the middle and main peaks. There was some thick and steep going, but it was mostly with little resistance. From Caribou we bushwhacked straight to the boundary swath and followed it to Mon 410 peak. The swath walk was very nice, with the ease of trail walking. From mon. 410, we bushwhacked along the Bumps ridge, having mainly easy going over the two recognized summits. We dropped down the east ridge of bumps. We crossed West Branch Road and the West Branch and bushwhacked a short distance up to bryan's car. This was a great hike and a fairly smooth go at six peaks.
