Ascent Trip Report

Deliberate route NW from Cedar HOL to make a swoop in via north ridge, Plan executed well traveling thru nice forest ... until ... a wicked nasty patch of spruce traps slowed progress to less than a halt. Considered giving up, persevered to summit - then retraced back out. About 5 hours .. an inordinate amount of that time was spent on the 2 mile BW
