A good summit with difficult tree skiing.

Nick Wilder

Description

This is a fun summit within very easy reach of Janet's Cabin, but don't underestimate the serious nature of getting there. It's well above tree line and conditions can go south fast.

From the summit, head straight north in the open terrain. You'll have to bear right (long right turns and short left ones) to get the best fall line. If you go straight down the fall line, you'll end up in cliffy sections and have pretty flat terrain to deal with below that.

Pick any spot in the trees - we couldn't much difference anywhere and head straight down the fall line until you hit Guller Creek far below, where you'll find the easy approach back to the hut. The trees are pretty dense and somewhat difficult around here.
