Ascent Trip Report

We stayed a weekend at the Barber Cabin. Hiked across the frozen lake and bush whacked up some pretty thick bush. It was slow and frustrating work. I would recommend researching for a better path, I didn't look and brute forced my way up. Once I got above 2600 feet I was more or less out of the brush and could connect meadows. The rest was pretty low key. The view was spectacular!
