Ascent Trip ReportExtremely wet, brushy bushwhack. Followed the clearcut north (small cairns, orange/yellow/pink flagging, stumps) over slippery logs and duff. Lots of veggie belay. Overshot the saddle by 100 vertical feet but stayed high and took ridge to Phelps. Sunbreaks on the summit. Descended to saddle at 4200' and attempted to ascend McClain. Cliffed out at 4800' - take lower route. Had to turn around due to time constraints.
