Ascent Trip Report

There was massive blow-down and trail erosion, so we decided that the minor peak was not worth the time it was taking and decided to do some more gain on Mitchell and then take in some scenic waterfalls instead. The footbridge marked on the topo was busted up and laying askew across the stream in two parts.

Don't attempt this before there is a major cleanup & reconstruction without patience and good route-finding skills.
