I had planned to go up the North Route, but I could not find the trail. I went further up and found a barely distinct trail that led me to the meadows under Carbonite Pass. Then it was a very nice scramble up and across the ridge to the main summit, and down the North Route. Now I know where to look for the trail. Along the way I saw two moose, a mountain goat and her kid, and a mountain chicken (grouse).
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
