Ascent Trip Report

Route back included descent to Deadman Lake. Trail on northeast slope of Goat Mtn had three snowfields; two were somewhat difficult to cross. Had ice axe. Basin around Deadman Lake had 1 to 4 feet of snow, especially in the woods. Repeated freeze/thaw made it easy to walk on. Did not see Sasquatch!
