Ascent Trip Report

From Seventy Rd we bushwacked up the ravine between Bald Peak & Seventy Mtn to the N up & around to Bald and followed Slip Mtn's long NE ridge with views to Slip Mtn, this bushwack was an easy thru mostly open woods slabbing the ridge up to views in evergreens at the ridgelines edge to Slip's steep E face and summit, nicely glissade the return to a snowshoe walk. The immediate way from Bald Peak Peak crosses a narrow four way col, while afterwards quite straight forward leaning to upward.
