I bushwhacked the subpeaks from the bend in the trail below the summit of the main peak. Snow was supportive in some places, but had traps and soft spots in others. I had trouble finding good lanes at the start of the bushwhack and did a bunch of zig-zagging and pushing through tighter woods. Once on the ridge I held better lines.
