Started to hike in St. Elmo. Left Tincup Pass Rd at Sawmill Hill. The bushes in that area were awful. Had to do major bushwhacking. It had rained the previous night and the bushes were wet. I got soaking wet and was worried about hypothermia. It was cloudy on the summit. For descent, I followed the northern ridgeline of Fitzpatrick and traversed the slopes of Point 12780 ft to reach Tincup Pass Rd.
