Ascent Trip Report

Forest Road 17, not gated, with good pavement, just not plowed.

PCT was good before approaching Deadfall Lake. After Lake 7743, I reached Lake 7816 and climbed to the saddle from there. Mt. Eddy trail was snow-covered at places. I just followed SW ridge to reach the summit.

On descent, I followed a snowshoe track to Lake 7790, but missed a critical creek crossing, followed its drainage to a unnamed lake (above 7640), then eventually trail junction. I lost PCT again, then found myself on Deadfall Creek Trail at 7000 before climbed back to PCT.
