Comments
Comments: We walked the road to a point near the height of land south of SE Diamond ridge where a road leaves north and bushwhacked up the peak in open woods. Snow was mainly supportive on this bushwhack (though we found harder going later in the day). The highpoint is recognized. We retraced our steps and used a skid road to the northwest to work up Garfield Falls Peak. We found the crust to be less supportive and frequently broke through. The highpoint is recognized. We took a further south route down, ending up closer to the car.
