Peakbug and I followed the ridge from Hicks and did some contouring to find a good place to make the final ascent. It was a nice day and this was a fun off-trail hike. We took a fairly direct descent path to get down to our vehicle, which worked well.
Charged through the snow up the NE slopes directly from the parking area. Bummed that the summit was indistinct and shrouded in trees, but found nice views to the south and east by wondering around a bit.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
