A Fun trip, the bushwhacking was bad, but not as much as I expected. It's pretty tame in comparison to Jumbo Mountain but is not for your average hiker. The mosquitoes and black flies were the worst part, as I type this my arm is still itchy from them.
The bushwhacking up and into Access Basin is the most difficult part...I will forever have a deep hatred for devil's club and slide alder. It's now been two years since I was up there and I'm now ready to go back...probably because the memories of how painful the climb was have faded a bit.
"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."
