A pre-dawn start from their first ‘cowboy camp’ sees the team begin their ascent of Mount Baden Powell. With the highway closed from Vincent Gap many choose to walk around the mountain, but a few hardy souls take on the climb. The switchbacks start immediately up the north side of the mountain, and disappear under the snow halfway up, eventually forcing Molly & Ethan to take the direct line straight up. The summit is worth the effort, with magnificent views stretching across this part of the country. They pick their way along the knife-edge descent, linking up with a couple of friends on the way, and make more miles than they’d thought before camping near Little Jimmy Springs. That should be the end of the snow until the Sierras… Episode 31 of Trail & Errors 🙂
