Yep, I think even if you cut down the ridge a bit earlier than the saddle with North Traverse, you'll still have to deal with some dense forests and willows. When you are in willows/forests at a point pretty much below the point along Keller's east ridge where the scrambling starts, look for a small boulder field just north of Rock Creek and you'll see some cairns at the edge of the forests. That will put you on the trail back to Boss Mine. Have fun bud.
If you missed a wedding cause you were bushwacking. I'd love to hear that conversation play out.
By the way - did you ask that grouse if he had seen my chocolate covered peanut butter malted milk balls at the base of the Silver Couloir? I know those little bastards have them, just gotta rattle their cage.
...which I think could be taken several different ways Likely all bad ways not painting the Chalks in a good light. Nope, dude, Kristine asked that grouse about those milk balls and he said the ptarmigan has em.
I recognized you in the lot but it was too early for conversation. Sarah and I took off about five minutes before you. We figured we'd catch you coming back from the summit but you guys were off again.
Give me a shout next time you guys head up into the Gores. Yeah, would have been fun to shuttle a car over to Deluge and maybe tack on that Gore Grand Traverse to make a real long day, but alas wedding duties sometimes call. Cheers!
I did the same loop last year, and had an exciting bushwack as well. Really nice airy scrambling!
