Up & down from the foot of Bowman Lake in twelve and a half hours. From Brown Pass I went straight up the mountain, encountering nothing worse than class 3. For the descent I walked the ridge to the west a ways and then came down onto the Boulder Pass Trail. Great climb. Zero bushwhacking. Weather was perfect. Views were superb. One of my best days ever in the park.
Climbed with Pat on her birthday after a night at Bowman Pass campground. Lost in the clouds most to the trip relying on a compass. Thought we might be attacked by a sow grizzly near the trail intersection of Bowman Pass and Brown Pass trails when she stood up on her hind legs and glared at us
