We woke up and donned day packs, starting the bushwhack from Little Wass tent site where we had stayed. We traveled initially north, to get up out of the drainage and then ran a course up to south pogy. From there, we could go straight to north pogy. We made our way towards the north end of the Pogy/Lord col, having to correct ourselves and side hill a bit. With plenty of day ahead of us, we chose to check out Lord, despite being wet. We ran over the sub-peak to the southeast and up to the highpoint. We headed down to the south end of the col and bushwhacked back to camp. We took the trail to Center Pond, where we would stay the next night.
In general, woods were very open with minimal low growth. There were a few tight spots up between the Pogys, but ultimately the bushwhacks were fairly painless.
