||Started the bushwhack after the fourth bog bridge heading south off of South Twin, just before a turn in the trail. The first 1/2 mile was fairly open woods with two short patches of spruce to wrestle through, not nearly a bad as I had expected. About 1/4 mile from SW Twin, I had a clear view of the mountain over what turned out to be a larger stand of thick spruce. If you like swimming through spruce, climbing over blowdowns and wrestling your way through fir waves - this last quarter mile is for you. Finally found the peak, marked appropriately enough by a band-aid after about one hour and forty five minutes of bushwhacking, the total bushwhack was about 3:15.|
Last bushhwack on the Trailwrights 72, #64 total.
