Ascent Trip ReportSame as Panther. There is a swampy area heading in towards Couch. Look to the right, as there is a bit of a trail heading around the swamp. You will still get wet feet, though this is much better than the swamp. (If you get to the swamp, head back, as the offshoot is before this area.)
Went through 4 liters of water and ran out 1/2 mile from the return stream. Very hot day; though be aware that there is no water for awhile after leaving the stream on the way up to Times Square. (Not until you return to the stream and this is a long 3 peaks.) Recommend refilling and carry more than you think, as this is a rugged climb.
