Ascent Trip Report

Indian Pass Brook was high (a little below waist) and fast, a bit scary to cross, in hindsight probally shouldnt have. Snowshoes, crampons or microspikes needed for decent between street and junction with Nye. Hard packed spine all the way up to street. Its melting tho, postholed ~ 4 times. Blowdown wasnt too bad but annoying and slow in the mile before reaching the junction, got scratched up pretty good. Made the mistake of thinking this was as pleasant as Tabletop, and went shortsleeved/shorts, but was quite hairy and blood-pumping. Herd Path well established to Street and Nye and were both fine, pleasant hikes. No bugs yet. Three words sum up this hike: Mud, Mud, and more Mud.
