Comments
Comments: What a spectacular day, only about 61 degrees but perfect weather, nice and sunny. We biked the logging road two miles up to the clearing, followed a bootleg trail for a bit until it ended, then set a bearing and bushwhacked the east side of the captain towards The Captain-Carrigain col, then turned left for the last bit to the top which is super dense, so we just powered through the branches. When we first saw the canister all hell broke loose in celebration! On the way down though we found a little path that we could tell people have took before and it led us to a river right towards where the end of the bootleg trail ended.
