Ascent Trip Report

w Random. It's been a while since I have straight up a black diamond ski slope - forgot how steep they are to climb. There were great views from the top of Loon, then we left the open air of the ski slopes and summit area and entered the thick woods for our relatively short but very slow bushwhack in search of the summit bumps of Scar Ridge. Wrists and forearms got pretty scratched up while doing the breast-stroke to part the trees and branches so I could walk through them. A fun hike though with some friends that I have hiked with before and some that I have not. Tomoko, Edzo, ken hodges, Heather, and Emily Singer.
