CAUTION: The last 200 yards of this hike are in dense rhododendron. I had to crawl on hands and knees, and I lost some equipment. I will never attempt this trip again without saw, pruning shears, or other trail-clearing equipment! Do not attempt this trip unless you can handle an extremely difficult bushwhack after a 3.8 mile hike, climbing 2400 feet.
Please: Just take another trip. This one isn’t worth the pain. I was still recovering a week later.
Note: Timings were made on a snowy hike outbound and moving fast with no break inbound (due to risk of being out after dark).
