Comments
Comments: Hiked up Basin to the Connector and then steeply up Black Angel to the height of land (it's been awhile and we had forgotten how steep). Started bushwhack through open woods and moderate grade. A little slippery due to recent rain and thick covering of leaves. Came to a spruce band just below the summit which we were able to get through and around by going to the right into an open area resembling a logged section. Looked around a bit but finally found the jar. Headed back down the way we came up.
