Brushy, even in winter. Great views. Followed route description on NW Hikers; recommended.
This will be a "one'n'dun".
Felt like being punished for past sins. I now have a clean slate.
several of us hungry for ice last year were stymied by a rock band last early winter. The cirque on NW side of Hall though had blessed us with great ice (yeah really!) in 2010 cold snap. It had not formed enough last Nov yet. Nice to have ice close to home every few years.
