Ascent Trip Report

Partial traverse of the Great Range Trail starting from The Garden Lot and up the South Side trail to Wolf Jaw's Notch then over the Upper Wolf jaw and beyond to Basin. We bailed after Basin due to lack of water and descended the Shory Short Cut trail to the John's brook for much needed rehydration which forced an unexpected bivy near the brook. Returned to the car after a few hours of sleep/hydrating via the VanHo trail.
