Comments
Comments: Despite the black flies, we tried to grab some northern peaks before the logging regrowth leafs out.

BW'd up the western side, aiming just a bit north of the peak. Followed whippy old logging scars, wet in places. Hit false North sub-bump, descended into a wet / snowy col. Hit unavoidable snow, knee-deep in places, for the last tenth mile. (In this heat, it won't last much longer). Summit had a jar. Came out the same way.

Fun three days up in Errol with JEM3.
