Re: Surveyor's Ridge - Shellrock Mountain 10/15/21

Re: Barrett Spur via Cathedral Ridge 2021/10/03

Nice report and photos! I might have passed you on the trail, too -- I was coming back from the McNeil tarns around 3:30 or 4 PM and ran into a couple folks coming back from that direction (I came up from the Vista ridge TH).
