Ascent Trip Report

As mentioned elsewhere, the initial switchbacks are completely gone. On the way back we tried Jen Chapman's suggestion of using the valley (drainage) to bypass the slope- while getting to the drainage was not bad, the drainage itself was not fun with a fair amount of annoying bushwhacking as well as rocky terrain.
