Ascent Trip Report

From Bayview TH. Unusually cool and windy. Easy peak despite the distance. Tagged Maggie Peak (S) on the way in. Extra mileage due to two embarrassing mistakes in navigation - missed two junctions during the trip. Stream crossing is easier via two logs 20 meters up the stream, instead of direct intersection with a trail. Couldn't find the register on summit. Excellent views of Crystal Range.
