Ascent Trip ReportWords can not describe the horror of this ascent. Over a mile of rhodo bashing and briars pulling me backwards. Rhodendrons thick as thieves ripping your exposed flesh. Followed Miry ridge until it turned South and rolled onto the shoulder. This was my marker and I turned around and stayed to the South as I approached the ridgeline. After this, just keep heading NE as best you can through the thickest brush I have ever seen. About three miles took over 6 hours. I knew to continue on this bearing until the terrain gave away. Then turn around and go to the highest point to your left. Snow was knee high. Marginal views in Winter...probably no view w/leaf cover.
