Info: Definitely a bushwhack. Getting above the creek and up the cliffs was the troublesome part (same on the return). Not sure if I did this in the safest, most efficient way. Found trail sections and cairns before and after this portion, but they were intermittent. A bit of snow up near the peak that wasn‘t much of a problem except that I was wearing summer hiking boots. I used my axe for a short bit, but I came down a way where it wasn‘t really needed. Register has been there since 1992! No pics. The ridge to Princeton still had one or two short sections of snow that was not avoidable (steep loose scree on either side). Should be gone soon.
