The swamp (aka Gores) delivers once again. Endless bushwhacky approach without views, lack of wildflowers compared to other areas, tons of deadfall, gazillion creek crossings on sketchy rotting logs and a million of hungry mosquitoes. 9 hr RT just to see the upper lake and no summits. Will update after round 2.

I‘m sure we‘ll see a summit shot soon! I still need this one, too. Was weathered off from the saddle with Y a few years ago.

I will be more ready next time and avoid a few pitfalls. Gotta bring my A game to the Swamp

This conditions report reads like one of those bad National Park Yelp reviews: https://www.farandwide.com/s/funniest-yelp-reviews-national-parks-8eaed16980024eb3

Finally someone has a sense of humor! Honestly, I could write a review like this for almost every Gore peak. 2 tries to ski in the Gores aside from Buffalo rank among the worst ski days ever. Number of mental breakdowns, meltdowns and other weird reactions from several people I knew rival or exceed those in Weminuche. So it's good to vent sometimes, haha.
