Ascent Trip Report

Bushwacked to Rocky from the summit of Lone Mt. Hiked through some thick evergreens but made the summit in a little more then a hour. Found the canister easily, signed in, and bushwacked back to the car. This was the last of the 4 bushwack mts. in the Slide Mt wilderness area. Had alot of fun with the bushwacks and got great usage of the map and compass. Some limited use of a new GPS unit I purchased.
