Ascent Trip Report

From Cahto Pk, I headed over to climb Signal Pk. Looked for the jeep road mapped east of the radio facility, but it is buried under slash and downfall and brush, so had to go over the top. Easy to find on other side, though a few spots are overgrown. Heard it was a mild bushwhack on Signal, so I observed the forest on the way over. When I got to its base, I just wasn't in the mood. I just had enough of pushing limbs and brush out of the way and stepping over downfall lately. Turned around and headed back. In the last meadow on the way back, I spotted a sow and at least one cub at the other end. Made some noise and they headed up the hill and into the forest.
