Ascent Trip ReportMeadows and open forest from the Obstruction Point parking lot down to crossing the Lillian River below 3500'. Slide alder on both sides of the river. Aiming for an avalanche slope I blundered into an unfortunately wide patch that seemed to never end. Coming back, with a better view to find a route, I had to negotiate just a narrow band to reach the river.
Up through the avalanche slope and then steep forest to the NE ridge of 6003. The ridge had jumbled rock and was brushier than I could have hoped for until just below the top. On the way down I descended to the saddle between 6003 and 5761 and down through the open basin before angling through the forest to my ascent route.
