Ascent Trip Report

On the way back from Green Mountain, after descending, I accidentally went up the wrong snow slope. I knew it was wrong because there were no footprints, but I kept going anyway, figuring I'd quickly get back to the right way. Well then I got turned around. By the time I sort of figured things out the easiest thing was to keep along the ridge. Still didn't see the trail from the west / SW end of the ridge, but just followed a compass bearing of 160 degrees (judging from a low-quality map I had) until I saw people on the trail. Happy to know all that extra work let me bag an extra peak!
