Ascent Trip Report

i love hiking along ridges with wide open views, and snow mountain west offers just that. after bagging the high point (benchmark is missing, but found one of the reference marks) i continued along the ridge to peak 6963 and downhill from there. it was a total blast: bushes easily avoided. i eventually hooked back up with the trail and headed over to high rock.

track is attached to snow mountain report.
