Long, dull backpack in to Spectacle lake from Cooper lake. Then the unpleasant bushwhack, talus, and scree begin to get on top of the 5,600 ft sub-alpine ridge where I bivied. Moderate snow to rock band (be careful of the moats), class 3-4 scrambling, more snow, more scrambling. Fantastic summit and view in the "Pickets of the Central Cascades". 6.5 hrs car to bivy, 11.5 hrs day 2, to summit and back to car. Should have tried the some other "fingers" as well. Will go back sometime to do that.
