Ascent Trip Report

From the end of FSR 462 we followed the ridge leading east over Green Craggie and Peak 4150, down the northeast ridge of Peak 4150, and up the southwest face of Big Craggies. Our route was apparently burned in the Chetco Bar Fire of 2017. The route is now easy to follow along open ridges and slopes. What brush is there is easy to step around or walk through. There is almost no shade on the route so the views are excellent but beware of taking the route on a hot day. Eventually the brush will return so don't wait too long before visiting Big Craggies if it is on your wish list.
