Bit of a walk up but you can at least keep it aesthetic by looking for harder ways to stay on solid rock. Hot spell moving thru the area that weekend so the snow barely froze. Post holing up from Sam Mack Meadow. Finally got solid up around 12+. Was really slushly on the way down. Walked all the way back to the old walk in campground on the north fork trail that afternoon. Nice to have a picnic table to sit at while killing time.
