Comments: Beautiful day for these two peaks. It was nice crossing paths with 13 others enjoying this super afternoon including 2 fellow Wanderers working on their Grid. Only the smallest trace of snow seen just before the summit scramble. I noticed Middle Moriah on the map and decided to give it a shot. i followed a fairly short herdpath through mostly open woods gradually thickening just before a very thick section with a bump to climb over. At this point i noticed a few trimmed trees shortly before once again entering some thick growth and finally popping out to summit. Im not sure if there is a canister but was unable to locate. There were however a few nice viewpoints.
