It was great hiking with you. I certainly learned a thing or two from the experience.

for the trench! We went up Belford the next day and thanks to you all we had a very easy hike up to tree-line. The snow slopes on Missouri looked pretty sketchy from where we where, glad you guys made it up and down safely!

looked like a much safer option than Missouri. We did really good keeping it safe, except for one spot about 20 feet wide that we couldn't avoid on the way out. Unfortunately that part came down to just a pucker and run. Glad we had the avy gear with, fortunately we got learn from that mistake the easy way.

We can't take much credit for the trail to treeline, it was pretty well packed out for us too. Once we hit the willows though, we were pretty much on our own from there.


Great info!

Thanks for this TR and updated info on TH access - the crux of my week is trying to figure out what to climb this WE - mulling Belford.
Your TR definitely provides useful info - and of course, would love to use your trench!
