Descended the Beckhorn ridge to Hough. Descent trail, would rather go down it than up. The Lillian Brook escape route has been cleared of blowdown, it's open and recognizable behind the Hough col. You can also go up this as an alternate access to the Dix Range. Perfect weather, perfect day. Contrary to the description, there are good views from the summit.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
