Comments
Comments: A quick overnight to OH. I mostly wanted to get this report in for the water conditions following the recent rains. I brought some water shoes for the crossings but there were no issues. Hooray!

This was my first time out here in a few years. To echo rocket21's report from a few days ago, the bushwhacks to the peak are getting a bit out of control. Going up Brutus I accidentally dislodged a 12"x12" rock in an eroded area and it went shooting down the side of the mountain at full speed. I could hear it crashing down for quite awhile. I yelled out warnings but thankfully I was heading up around 7 AM so no one was behind me.
